The Bahá'í Faith


The founder of the Bahá'í Faith was Bahá'u'lláh, a Persian nobleman from Tehran who gave up everything for a life of incarceration, exile, and persecution in order to bring to mankind a new message of peace and unity.

Bahá'u'lláh claimed to be a new Messenger from God who was here to teach us the lesson for today is that of unity. He also taught us of things that were, at that time, revolutionary. He taught there is only one God, that there is only one human race, and that all of the world's religions represent stages in the revelation of God's will and purpose for humanity. Bahá'u'lláh taught that in this day humanity has collectively come of age and that the time has arrived for the coming together of all people into a peaceful, global society.

Bahá'u'lláh wrote, "The earth is one country, and mankind its citizens."
