What Bahá’ís Believe
All around the world, the teachings of the Bahá’í Faith inspire individuals and communities as they work to improve their own lives and contribute to the advancement of civilization. Bahá’í beliefs address such essential themes as the oneness of God and religion, the oneness of humanity and freedom from prejudice, the inherent nobility of the human being, the progressive revelation of religious truth, the development of spiritual qualities, the integration of worship and service, the fundamental equality of the sexes, the harmony between religion and science, the centrality of justice to all human endeavours, the importance of education, and the dynamics of the relationships that are to bind together individuals, communities, and institutions as humanity advances towards its collective maturity.
What Bahá’ís Do
Bahá’ís share a common goal of serving humanity and refining their inner-lives in accordance with the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh. The community to which they belong is one of learning and action, free from any sense of superiority or claim to exclusive understanding of truth. It is a community that strives to cultivate hope for the future of humanity, to foster purposeful effort, and to celebrate the endeavours of all those in the world who work to promote unity and alleviate human suffering.
On 29 and 30 October 2019, in countless settings and places throughout the world, people have celebrated the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Bab. See the celebrations around the globe!

We are currently holding a study circle entitled "Reflection on the Life of the Spirit" every week. The material touches many topics from understanding the writings, prayers and life after death. If discussing deep and meaningful subjects interests you, please feel free to contact us for more information using the "contact" section below.
Devotional meetings serve to awaken spiritual susceptibilities within the participants, and in concert with the acts of service they perform, lead to a pattern of community life that is infused with the spirit of devotion and focused on the attainment of spiritual and material prosperity.
If you are interested in sharing inspiring quotes or feel uplifted listening to prayers and/or spiritual writings, please contact us to have more information about the regular gatherings organized by the Baha'i community.
Every Friday, 4pm to 5pm
Bahá’ís see the young as the most precious treasure a community can possess. In them are the promise and guarantee of the future. Yet, in order for this promise to be realized, children need to receive spiritual nourishment. In a world where the joy and innocence of childhood can be so easily overwhelmed by the aggressive pursuit of materialistic ends, the moral and spiritual education of children assumes vital importance.
If you are interested in your precious youngsters learning about their higher nature, virtues while having fun, please contact us for more information!
Every Wednesday, 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Junior Youth Program
Regardless of their social situations, young people aspire for spiritual and intellectual growth and “to make a contribution to the fortunes of humanity”. They have many wonderful powers, and channeling them properly is an important concern, for when misdirected or manipulated by others, they can cause much social distress. Among the youth of the world are those alive to Bahá’u’lláh’s vision of a spiritually and materially prosperous world.
This Junior Youth Program is for youth between 11 and 15 years old. If you are interested in this program, please contact us via the "contact" section below.
“It is Our wish and desire that every one of you may become a source of all goodness unto men, and an example of uprightness to mankind. Beware lest ye prefer yourselves above your neighbors.”
