Intro to the Baha'i Faith
The Bahá’í Faith is a world religion whose purpose is to unite all the races and peoples in one universal Cause and one common Faith.
Bahá’u’lláh says, “The Great Being saith: O ye children of men! The fundamental purpose animating the Faith of God and His Religion is to safeguard the interests and promote the unity of the human race, and to foster the spirit of love and fellowship amongst men. Suffer it not to become a source of dissension and discord, of hate and enmity.” (Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 215)
Bahá’ís are the followers of Bahá’u’lláh, Who they believe is the Promised One of all Ages.
Throughout the world, people of all religions are looking for the coming of one who will unite the world. For example Jesus said; “And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.” (John 10:16)
We believe that the promised hour has come and that Bahá’u’lláh is the great Personage Whose Teachings will enable humanity to build a new world order. He is the Voice of Christ returned to gather His sheep into One Fold.
