Welcome to the Bahá'í Community of Brockville, Ontario, Canada.
The Bahá'í Faith
The Bahá'í Faith, the world’s newest independent global belief system, teaches the oneness of God, the unity of humanity and the essential harmony of religion.
The millions of Bahá'ís in the world are drawn from every race, every nationality and every ethnicity. Wherever they come from and wherever they reside Bahá'ís are united in a common belief that “the earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens”.
Bahá'ís believe in peace, justice, love, altruism and unity. The Bahá'í teachings promote the agreement of science and religion, the equality of the sexes and the elimination of all prejudice and racism.
“The fundamental principle enunciated by Baha’u’llah, the followers of His Faith firmly believe, is that Religious truth is not absolute but relative, that Divine Revelation is a continuous and progressive process, that all the great religions of the world are divine in origin, that their basic principles are in complete harmony, that their aims and purposes are one and the same, that their teachings are but facets of one truth, that their functions are complementary, that they differ only in the non-essential aspects of their doctrines and that their missions represent successive stages in the spiritual evolution of human society.”
‘Abdu’l-Bahá, The Promised Day Is Come
"When you love a member of your family or a compatriot, let it be with a ray of the Infinite Love! Let it be in God, and for God! Wherever you find the attributes of God love that person, whether he be of your family or of another. Shed the light of a boundless love on every human being whom you meet, whether of your country, your race, your political party, or of any other nation, color or shade of political opinion. Heaven will support you while you work in this ingathering of the scattered peoples of the world beneath the shadow of the almighty tent of unity."
