from around the world.
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, Krishna, Zoroaster, Christ
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.
