Who are we?
We are Bahá’ís – members of the Bahá’í Faith, the second most widespread of the world’s independent religions, established in 235 countries and territories throughout the world. We come from over 2,100 ethnic, racial, and tribal groups and number some 7 million worldwide.
For more than a century, Bahá’í communities around the globe have been working to break down barriers of prejudice between peoples and have collaborated with other like-minded groups to promote the model of a global society. At the heart of our belief is the conviction that humanity is a single people with a common destiny. In the words of Bahá’u’lláh, the Founder of our Faith, “The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens.”
Bahá’u’lláh taught that there is one God Who progressively reveals His will to humanity. Each of the great religions brought by the Messengers of God – Moses, Krishna, Buddha, Zoroaster, Jesus, Muhammad – represents a successive stage in the spiritual development of civilization.
Bahá’u’lláh, the most recent Messenger in this line, has brought teachings that address the moral and spiritual challenges of the modern world. We invite you to learn more about our Faith – its perspective of the past, its understanding of the present, and its vision of the future.
This is the changeless Faith of God, eternal in the past, eternal in the future.” — Bahá’u’lláh
