General Info Tenants Who's Who Places Bahá'í History FAQ's

The Baha'i Faith is a worldwide religion based on the teachings of Baha'u'llah (1817-1892). He stated that the time had come for the people of the world to put aside their differences and to unite on the basis of the teachings that he had brought.

The Bahá'í Faith does not presume that all other religions are wrong, but rather that God has sent messengers throughout history to guide mankind and that Baha'u'llah is the latest manifestation. Bahá’ís believe that there is one God Who progressively reveals His will to humanity. Each of the great religions brought by the Messengers of God -- Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Jesus, Muhammad, Zoroaster -- represents a successive stage in the spiritual development of civilization.

The Bahá'í Faith has been an active part of religious and social life in America since the late 1800s. We are a recognized advocate for spiritual solutions based on the Teachings of Bahá'u'lláh on issues such as the elimination of prejudice, the equality of women and men, the universal education of children, and the establishment of world peace.

The Bahá'ís are part of a worldwide religious community united by the belief that there is one God, one human race, and one evolving religion. We invite you to join our study circles, devotional gatherings, children's classes, and programs designed to assist you, your family, and the American society in a spiritual search for truth.

"To be a Bahá'í simply means to love all the world;
to love humanity and try to serve it;
to work for universal peace and universal brotherhood."
-- Abdu'l-Baha
