What Bahá'ís Do
Activities to Build a Vibrant Community
Study circles are regular gatherings where groups of friends and neighbours engage in study of the Baha’i writings and develop their capacity to serve their community.
Devotionals are regular gatherings of people from all faiths and backgrounds who come together to share prayers and worship. Devotional gatherings are considered an essential practice of the spiritual wellbeing of a community, and follow no set form or rituals.
Children’s classes aim to nurture the hearts and minds of children. The emphasis of these classes is on helping children to learn to reflect on and apply spiritual principles, such as love, unity and justice, to their own lives and to the lives of those around them.
Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program
This educational program typically engages older youth as facilitator of younger peers aged 11 to 15 to help them develop their powers of expression, capacities for moral reasoning, and an ethic of service to others. The program combines study, mentorship and social action.
What Bahá’ís Believe
“He Who is your Lord, the All-Merciful, cherisheth in His heart the desire of beholding the entire human race as one soul and one body.”
In thousands upon thousands of locations 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.
