on the Bahá'í Faith
The Bahá'í Faith is the youngest of the world's
independent religions. Its founder, Bahá'u'lláh
(1817-1892), is regarded by Bahá'ís as the most
recent in the line of Messengers of God that stretches back beyond
recorded time and that includes Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Zoroaster,
Christ and Muhammad.
The central theme of Bahá'u'lláh's message is that
humanity is one single race and that the day has come for its
unification in one global society. God, Bahá'u'lláh
said, has set in motion historical forces that are breaking down
traditional barriers of race, class, creed, and nation and that
will, in time, give birth to a universal civilization. The principal
challenge facing the peoples of the earth is to accept the fact
of their oneness and to assist the processes of unification.
One of the purposes of the Bahá'í Faith is to help
make this possible. A worldwide community of some five million
Bahá'ís, representative of most of the nations,
races and cultures on earth, is working to give Bahá'u'lláh's
teachings practical effect. Their experience will be a source
of encouragement to all who share their vision of humanity as
one global family and the earth as one homeland.
