Baha'i Faith


The Baha'i religion is a relatively new faith in the world. The Baha'i headquarters is in Haifa, Israel, and is known for the temple that sits on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. The terms "Bahai faith" and "Bahai religion" are both correct termonology. "Bahai faith" is the term most associated with the worldview and convictions of Bahai's adherents, while "Bahai religion" is the term most used when refering to the community's organization, institutions, and religious requirements. The Baha'i religion also has important symbols, such as the Ringstone.

When it comes to the Baha'i religion, many people have questions like: What do Baha'i believe about God, the universe, people, the spiritual realm, and the afterlife? What are their values, traditions, and ethics? Who are their teachers, leaders, and followers? And what is their history? Serious students of religion will also want to know how Baha'i is the same as, and different from, other major world religions, such as Judaism, Islam, and Christianity.
