Ye dwell in one world, and have been created through the operation of one Will. Blessed is he who mingleth with all men in a spirit of utmost kindliness and love. — Bahá'u'lláh


Throughout history, God has sent Divine Educators to guide the advancement of civilization.

Bahá'u'lláh, the latest of these Messengers, taught that a just and peaceful global society is now possible. For more than a century, Bahá'ís in the United States have striven to give expression to the oneness of humanity, a core principle of their faith, by seeking to eliminate racial prejudice, advance the equality of women and men, and build vibrant spiritual communities that reflect the human family in all its diversity.

Learn how Bahá'ís worldwide are responding to the call of Bahá'u'lláh to refine their inner characters and serve humanity.


Humanity is one, and prejudices and patterns of life that block the expression of this fundamental truth are gradually falling away.

We see evidence of this transformation all around us – the breaking down of the old, and the building up of new ways of being and social structures that contribute to the advancement of all people. Working towards this vision will require profound personal and social transformation over many generations. Humanity is leaving behind its childhood and entering a period of collective maturity.

A new understanding of religion
This transformation requires a new vision of the purpose and nature of religion. Religion is a faculty of the human soul that enables individuals to mine inner resources of courage, vision, and high endeavor. It allows groups and communities to explore reality together and forge a common vision and purpose. When harmonized with science, religion is a system of knowledge that propels the advancement of civilization.

Learning to put beliefs into action
Bahá'ís are striving to align themselves with the constructive processes that are informed by this fundamental oneness of mankind, religion, and God, and walk with all on a path of service.
