Marquette Area Baha'i Community
Members of the Baha’i Faith seek to unite with neighbors in spiritual conversations that release the power of the human spirit and cultivate vibrant communities.
Baha’is believe that humanity is one, and prejudices and patterns of life that block the expression of this fundamental truth are gradually falling away.
We see evidence of this transformation all around us – the breaking down of the old, and the building up of new ways of being and social structures that contribute to the advancement of all people. Working towards this vision will require profound personal and social transformation over many generations. Humanity is leaving behind its childhood and entering a period of collective maturity.
This transformation requires a new vision of the purpose and nature of religion. Religion is a faculty of the human soul that enables individuals to mine inner resources of courage, vision, and high endeavor. It allows groups and communities to explore reality together and forge a common vision and purpose. When harmonized with science, religion is a system of knowledge that propels the advancement of civilization.
Bahá’ís are striving to align themselves with the constructive processes that are informed by this fundamental oneness of mankind, religion, and God, and walk with all on a path of service.
