About

The Bahá’í Faith is the youngest of the world’s independent religions.

Its founder, Baha’u’llah (1817-1892), is regarded by Bahá’ís as the most recent in the line of Messengers that stretches back beyond recorded time and that includes Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Christ and Muhammad. The central theme of Bahá’u’lláh’s message is that humanity is one single race and that the day has come for its unification in one global society.

One of the purposes of the Bahá’í Faith is to help make this possible. A worldwide community of some five million Bahá’ís, representative of most of the nations, races and cultures on earth, is working to give Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings practical effect. Their experience will be a source of encouragement to all who share their vision of humanity as one global family and the earth as one homeland.

Some of the Basic Principles Baha’i Believe In:

  • The oneness of mankind.
  • Independent investigation of truth.
  • The common foundation of all religions.
  • The essential harmony of science and religion.
  • Equality of men and women.
  • Elimination of prejudice of all kinds.
  • Universal compulsory education.
