What we believe

Bahá’ís believe in the Teachings of Bahá’u’lláh and strive to live their lives by these principles of equality, justice and love for all of humanity.

Bahá’u’lláh’s vision for humanity is sweeping in its scope and calls for no less than the unification of the entire human race:

“This is the Day in which God’s most excellent favors have been poured out upon men, the Day in which His most mighty grace hath been infused into all created things. It is incumbent upon all the peoples of the world to reconcile their differences, and, with perfect unity and peace, abide beneath the shadow of the Tree of His care and loving-kindness.”

It is this vision that has captured the imagination and loyalty of millions of people around the world – from virtually every race, culture, class and nation. It is a vision of hope, of peace, and of confidence in the future of mankind. Bahá’u’lláh’s call is challenging indeed, for He claims to be none other than the Messenger of God to the age of human maturity, the fulfillment of the promises made in earlier religions. His purpose is to regenerate the spiritual fortunes of mankind.

One God
There is only one Creator – the Source of all light and life, the ultimate reality, that unknowable essence of essences we call God.

One Evolving Religion
Throughout history God has sent Spiritual Educators to guide mankind: Zoroaster, Krishna, Moses, Buddha, Christ, Muhammad, and now Bahá’u’lláh.

One People
All of humanity is one human family. We are wonderfully diverse in culture and experience and we are one people.

Elimination of Prejudice
Acceptance of the oneness of mankind requires the abandonment of prejudices of all kinds—race, class, color, creed, religion, nation, gender, anything that enables people to feel superior to others.

Equality of Women and Men
Men and women are as two wings of a bird—if one wing is weak, the bird cannot fly. Only when women are welcomed into full partnership in all fields of human endeavor can humanity reach its true potential.

Harmony of Science and Religion
Human beings are endowed with both an intellect and a soul. Both must be developed for mankind to advance. Without reason, religion becomes mere superstition. Without the spiritual aspirations of religion, the fruits of science can be used in destructive ways.
