About The Bahá'í Faith

The Bahá'í Faith is an independent world religion with approximately six million adherents residing in more than 124,000 localities and established in 235 countries and territories across the planet. Its spiritual principles affirm the oneness of God, of humanity, and of religion. Bahá'ís believe that this Faith is the most recent stage in the progressive revelation of a divinely ordained process, and that Bahá'u'lláh is the Messenger of God for this age.

Bahá'ís believe that the social problems besetting the world today require a spiritual solution which resolves the underlying conflicts; that global transformation can only be achieved by a spiritual transformation on a personal level.
