Divine Science Statement of Belief:

Life is Continuous.
It proceeds from Divine Life, which is Good in all its manifestations.
There is only one Power in the Universe, the Power we call God.
There is no evil except that which is man-made.
The normal state of man is abounding health.
The Divine Purpose is to express the Joy of Life.

Divine Science Statement of Being

God is all, both invisible and visible.
One Presence, One Mind, One Power is all.
This One that is all is perfect life, perfect love, and perfect substance.
Man is the individualized expression of God and is ever one with this
perfect life, perfect love, and perfect substance.

Fundamental Principles:

The Omnipresence of God: “The foundation truth of Divine Science is that limitless Being, God [Good], is equally present everywhere and is the ALL of everything. God is pure Spirit, absolute, changeless, eternal, manifesting in all creation. ‘God is everywhere, therefore God is here. What God is is everywhere, therefore what God is is here.’–Nona Brooks. The logical conclusion is that there can be no other presence than God-presence; no other power than God-power; no other knowledge than God-knowledge.” —Divine Science Textbook, p. 28

God is Good - Therefore ‘Goodness is Omnipresent’: “Darkness is not a reality, it is merely the absence of light. In the same way when the individual thought is centered upon the omnipresence of good, evil thought does not move out and continue to exist elsewhere; it simply becomes nonexistent. Evil has no reality within itself; it can have existence only so long as an individual supports it by his belief in it.” —Divine Science Textbook, p. 30-31

Fundamental Practice:

“THE PRACTICE OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD IS THE WHOLE OF DIVINE SCIENCE”
