Bahá'í Community

Rockford, IL USA

The Bahá'í Faith is the world's newest major religion. This page is dedicated to the Bahá'í Faith with some interesting links to study and reflect upon.

 

The Bahá'í Faith had its beginnings in Iran with the founding of the Babi Faith, in 1844 by the Báb (meaning Gate or Door). He foretold the coming of the Promised One of all the world's religions, the One Who would usher in the age of peace for all humankind. His name was Baha'u'llah, which means "the glory of God."

 

Some of the fundamental teachings of Baha'u'llah are these:

 

    ♥ There is only one God.

    ♥ Mankind is one. All people are part of one human race.

    ♥ Each one of us is responsible for investigating the truth for ourselves.

    ♥ Men and women are equal, like two wings of a bird.

    ♥ Each child is entitled to a basic education.

    ♥ Science and religion must agree. Science without religion is materialism; religion without science is superstition.

    ♥ Consultation is a distinctive, non-adversarial method of decision-making used by Bahá’ís.

    ♥ The need to establish a universal peace protected by a world commonwealth.

    ♥ There is a spiritual solution to economic problems.
