The teachings of the Bahá’í Faith inspire individuals and communities as they work to improve their own lives and contribute to the advancement of civilization
Unique among the worldʻs religions, Bahá’u’lláh provided instructions for the establishment of an ongoing authoritative source of guidance for the people of the world.
Baha’u’llah’s Revelation affirms that the purpose of our lives is to know God and to attain His presence. Our true identity is our rational soul, whose free will and powers of understanding enable us to continually better ourselves and society.
The Bahá’í Writings explain that the reality of God is beyond the understanding of any mortal mind, though we may find expressions of His attributes in every created thing.
Realization of the principle of the oneness of humanity is at once the goal and operating principle of Bahá’u’lláh’s revelation.
The Bahá’í Writings are replete with references to universal peace — “the supreme goal of all mankind” — as well as explanations of the social principles with which this peace is associated.
