One of the fastest growing religions today is the Bahai Faith. It is a faith that originated in Persia (modern day Iran) and has been relentlessly persecuted in that country.

Below is a quick synopsis of what Bahais believe:

According to Bahá’í teachings, religious history is seen as an evolving educational process for mankind, through God’s messengers, which are termed Manifestations of God. Bahá’u’lláh is seen as the most recent, pivotal, but not final of these individuals. He claimed to be the long-expected educator and teacher of all peoples, prophesied in Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and other religions, and that his mission was to establish a firm basis for unity throughout the world, and inaugurate an age of peace and justice, which Bahá’ís expect will inevitably arise.

There are currently over 5 million Bahais in 200 countries. Their influence and their focus is global. The clip below captures some of their work:

A new temple being built in Chile is represented in this video. The commemoration of the passing of Bahaullah is captured here.

With all the strife and problems in the world it is good to see that Hope, Faith and Love are alive and doing well.
