Church. The structure of Truth and Love; what ever rests upon and proceeds from the divine Principle.
The Church is that institution, which affords proof of its utility and is found elevating the race, rousing the dormant understanding from material beliefs to the apprehension of spiritual ideas and the demonstration of divine Science, thereby casting our devils, or error, and healing the sick.
By Mary Baker Eddy Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures Page 583:12-19
I have a special relationship with my church friends. We are of like minds and traveling the same road together. They are like family.
