About the Baha’i Faith
Baha’i Faith is an independent world religion which aims spiritual unity of all mankind. The Baha’i faith has three core principles which establisht the basis for Baha’i teachings. Unity of God, Unity of Religion and Unity of Diversity. According to the Bahá’í Faith’s teachings, the human purpose is to learn to know and to love God through such methods as prayer, reflection, and being of service to humanity.
The Bahá’í Faith was founded by Bahá’u’lláh in 19th-century Persia. He is regarded by Baha’is as the most recent Divine Teacher in the line of the Messengers of God that have enlightened the peoples of the earth with their divine teachings. These include Divine Teachers such as Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Christ and Muhammad. The central theme of Baha’u’llah’s message is that humanity is one single race and that the day has come for its unification into one global society. The principal challenge facing the peoples of the earth, as perceived by Baha’u’llah, is to accept their oneness and, to assist the processes of unification of the entire human race and to thereby carry forward an ever-advancing civilization.
