What Baha’is Do

Baha’is hail from all walks of life. They share a common goal of serving humanity and of striving to establish a vibrant pattern of community life that reflects the teachings of Baha’u’llah. Gatherings of prayer and worship, acts of service, and educational programmes for young and old alike are all important parts of Baha’i community life.


The Baha’i community 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.
