The Baha’i Faith:  A New Chapter in the Eternal Faith of God

The Baha’i Faith: A New Chapter in the Eternal Faith of God

Baha’is believe that the great religions brought by the succession of divine messengers, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed, and Baha’u’llah, among others, have been the spiritual driving force of the civilizing process throughout history. According to Baha’u’llah, “These principles and laws, these firmly-established and mighty systems, have proceeded from one Source, and are the rays of one Light.” The pivotal concepts of the Baha’i Faith are the oneness of religion and the oneness of humankind, that the day has come for the unification of humanity into one global family. This presentation will cover: The Baha’i concept of religion, Baha’u’llah’s teachings, and a history of the Faith.
