About Us

Principles of the Bahai Faith

image79

The three main Principles of the Bahai Faith are:  There is only One God, Mankind is One, and Religion is One.  All great religions teach the same spiritual truths....and bring new social teachings for the people of that day and age.

 Among the principles emphasized by Baha'u'llah (founder of the Baha'i Faith) are:

  • the oneness of humanity
  • the equality of women and men
  • the elimination of prejudice
  • the elimination of extremes of wealth and poverty
  • the independent investigation of truth
  • universal education
  • religious tolerance
  • the harmony of science and religion
  • a world commonwealth of nations
  • a universal auxiliary language

Baha'is strive to uphold a high moral standard. Baha'u'llah stressed the importance of:

  • honesty
  • trustworthiness
  • chastity
  • service to others
  • purity of motive
  • generosity
  • deeds over words
  • unity
  • work as a form of worship

 Baha'is follow the moral code of the Ten Commandments - and more. Baha'u'llah forbids:

  • killing
  • stealing
  • lying
  • adultery and promiscuity
  • gambling
  • alcoholic drinks
  • drug abuse
  • gossip and backbiting

Inspiring Writings

image80

"The purpose of God in creating man had been, and will ever be, to enable him to know his Creator and to attain His Presence."  


"Immerse yourselves in the Ocean of My  words, that ye may unravel its secrets, and discover all the pearl of wisdom that lie hid in its depths."   


"Noble have I created thee, yet thou hast abased thyself.  Rise then unto that for which thou wast created."


"Know thou of a truth that the soul, after its separation from the body, will continue to progress until it attaineth the presence of God, in a state and condition which neither the revolution of ages and centuries, nor the changes and chances of this world, can alter.  It will endure as long as the Kingdom of God, His sovereignty, His dominion and power will endure.  It will manifest the signs of God and His attributes, and will reveal His loving kindness and bounty"


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The Prophet Founder of the Baha'i Faith, Baha'u'llah (the Glory of  God) wrote over 100 volumes of  Spiritual Writings to guide the affairs of humankind for the next 1000 years.

Brief background about the Baha'i Faith:

"Founded a century and a half ago, the Baha'i Faith is today among the fastest-growing of the world's religions.  With more than five million followers, who reside in virtually every nation on earth, it is the second-most widespread faith, surpassing every religion but Christianity in its geographic reach.  Baha'is reside in more than 100,000 localities around the world, an expansion that reflects their dedication to the ideal of world citizenship."

Investigate For Yourself

image81

In this day and age, with so many books to explore, and access to the internet, investigating and researching the truth is much easier.  

"The true seeker is one who is detached and sincerely searching for knowledge of God and His Manifestation."

(Shoghi Effendi, God Passes By)

 "There is only one God, the Creator of the universe.  Throughout history, God has revealed Himself to humanity through a series of divine Messengers- each of whom  has founded a great religion.  The Messengers have included Abraham, Kristna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad.  This succession of divine Teachers reflects a single historic "plan of God" for educating humanity about the Creator and for cultivating the spiritual, intellectual, and moral capacities of the human race.  The goal has been to prepare the way for a single, global, and ever-advancing civilization.  Knowledge of God's will for humanity in the modern age was revealed just over 100 years ago by Baha'u'llah, who is the latest of these divine Messengers."

About Us

Abdu'l-Baha

Abdu'l-Baha, the eldest son of the Prophet Founder of the Baha'i Faith, Baha'ullah, was the perfect exemplar of the Baha'i Faith's spirit and teachings.  A champion of social justice and an ambassador for international peace, He devoted His life to furthering His Father's causes and to promoting its ideals.  He visited America in 1911-1914, visiting 40 cities. He was greeted with respect and acclaim by Baha'is and the general public alike, and was invited to speak to distinguished groups and organizations at universities, in churches and synagogues, and the homes of prominent individuals.


-  Excerpted from "The Baha'is", a publication of the Baha'i International Community


No Clergy in the Baha'i Faith

There is no clergy in the Baha'i Faith.  Each community is guided by an elected body of nine  members of the Baha'i Faith, through secret ballot on an annual basis.  


There  is a National body of Baha'i members elected annually by secret ballot, and every five years the  International body (The Universal House of Justice) is elected to guide the affairs of the  world wide community of over 5 million Baha'is.


 


 


Jr. Youth & Youth

Youth have played a vital role in  Baha'i History from the very start.  Young people have energy, idealism and the desire to contribute to the betterment of the world, regardless of their social situations...While youth have many matters that occupy their time and energy, by developing patterns of behavior that balance the spiritual and material requirements of life, they discover both personal growth and meaning.  


Also, by developing spiritual perception, the power of expression, and a moral framework, youth  are empowered to live a life free of contradictions and contribute to an ever-advancing civilization.
