About

Seventeenth Church of Christ, Scientist is a part of a worldwide denomination with deep roots in early Christianity.  Founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1879, the Church of Christ, Scientist is designed “to commemorate the word and works of our Master” and “reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing.”  There are over 1700 churches around the world, in more than 75 countries.

We are a faith devoted to the spiritual development of society through worship, spiritual education and service.  The community at Seventeenth Church of Christ, Scientist began meeting in 1924 and built our first & present location in 1968, at the corner of Wacker Drive and Wabash Avenue. Come worship with us, explore the resources of our Christian Science Reading Room, and join with us in service to God’s creation.
