What We Believe

What We Believe

The Baha’i teachings have a lot to say on almost all areas of life, but some of the main principles are:

  1. The same God answers everyone’s prayers, wherever they’re from and whatever name they call him.
  2. The major world religions are all chapters of the same story — our story as humanity. God has progressively revealed more and more of himself to humanity through his Messengers as we mature as a society.
  3. God has always loved us as individuals, but the day has come to remove all barriers that separate humanity from each other, so that we can build a peaceful new civilization to replace the broken world we live in.

What We Practice

  1. Independent investigation of truth
  2. A life of service to our city and all of humanity
  3. Equality of women and men
  4. Elimination of prejudice
  5. Work performed in the spirit of service is a form of worship
  6. The pursuit of knowledge and excellence — science and religion should be complementary
