Mission

“Let Christian Scientists minister to the sick…”
Mary Baker Eddy (Miscellaneous Writings)

Glenmont’s mission is to exemplify the healing ministry of Christian Science as articulated in the Church Manual and in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. We are dedicated to:

  • serving all those whom God sends to us to be served.
  • supporting Christian Science healing through spiritual regeneration and radical reliance on God.
  • loving our patients and staff wholly, with Christly affection, thereby fostering a spirit of home and Christian community.
  • encouraging each nurse to express his or her Christian Science Nursing ministry in direct relation with God.
  • providing excellence in patient care.

Christian Science Nursing is a religious, non-medical form of care that accords with Christ Jesus’ words, “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” (Matthew 25:40).

Mary Baker Eddy (the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science), recognizing the necessity for spiritually-based nursing care, established Christian Science Nursing as an integral component of her church, as is seen in one of the Church’s bylaws:

Christian Science Nurse. SECT. 31. A member of The Mother Church who represents himself or herself as a Christian Science nurse shall be one who has a demonstrable knowledge of Christian Science practice, who thoroughly understands the practical wisdom necessary in a sick room, and who can take proper care of the sick.
