What Bahá’ís Do
O ye children of men, the fundamental purpose animating the Faith of God and His Religion is to safeguard the interests and promote the unity of the human race. — Bahá’u’lláh
Bahá’ís everywhere are engaged in uniting with friends and neighbors in prayer, strengthening the devotional character of the community and responding to the spiritual aspirations of the young, by serving as children’s class teachers.
Bahá’ís and their friends are also supporting groups of teens to help them explore their spiritual and social capacity, to sharpen their powers of expression, and to work for the common good in their communities. The Bahá’í vision of unity means the bringing together of people of varied backgrounds to study such topics as the purpose of life and the nature of the soul—and then working alongside one another in their neighborhoods to carry out acts of service.
You can find Bahá’ís in more than 8,000 towns and cities across the United States actively involved in fostering open, vibrant and supportive communities.
