Minister’s Corner

Rev. Dr. Craig Harris Quimby Church Minister
Rev. Mary Emma Dryden Minister Emeritus
In loving memory of the Honorable Reverend Lucia Faugno



We are a non-sectarian group of people dedicated to the study and application of the inherent capabilities within all of humankind. Its purpose is to support and further the benevolent creative forces in the universe so that health, happiness and peace prevail.

Quimby Church – Divine Science in the Meadowlands is a member of Divine Science Federation International and International New Thought Alliance.


Quimby’s philosophy covered certain ideas which enrich life in all ways.


Beliefs determine happiness or the lack of it.

Beliefs can be changed.

Life responds to our beliefs.

We exist within the One Presence, the One Spirit.

We have access to the One.


A major definer of the Quimby message was the gifted writer and speaker Dr. Ervin Seale (1909-1990), who for 32 years addressed a large audience at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City.

The Quimby Memorial Church is an outgrowth of the Quimby Memorial Church and Foundation of New York City. The Church and Foundation were under the direction of Dr. Ervin Seale. Dr. Seale, a former minister of the Church of the Truth, dedicated his later years to translating and publishing the writings of Phineas Parkhurst Quimby. Among the modern writers whose ideas are included in our teaching are Dr. Ervin Seale, Emmet Fox (ordained as a Divine Science minister), and Joel Goldsmith



The Good I am seeking is my God

God is my health

The Good I am seeking is my strength

 God is my strength

The good I am seeking is my support

God is my support

The good I am seeking is protection.

Life is God

God is intelligence, Omnipresent, Omniscient, and Omnipotent.



We are spiritual beings having a human experience. In Spirit we are in the likeness of the Divine Mind of Innate Intelligence, for we are One with the Mother / Father, All Good, All Love, All Wellness.

Our Flesh is but a garment of the outer world and it’s mind (our personality) is only an accumulation of what we take in from the outer world and the inner world and choose to express.

May I be conscious of my thoughts and beliefs, and may I see beyond the senses of man’s muck and mire.

In the simple but profound words of H. B. Jeffrey – “Lord all I need is Thee and all is well”; for there in the eternal moment is Wisdom, Peace, Grace, and Love.
