October 22, 2017, marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of the founder of our faith, Bahá'u'lláh (Arabic for "The Glory of God"). On the prior day, October 21, we'll be celebrating the birth of His forerunner, the Báb (Arabic "Gate"). Across the Twin Holy Days weekend, the Bahá'ís of Irving will be holding neighborhood devotional gatherings throughout the city, and a banquet celebration on Sunday. Please reach out to your Bahá'í friends or contact us through Facebook for more information.

If you already have an invitation to the banquet, please visit the exact web address listed there in order to register your attendance.

What is the Bahá'í Faith?

The Bahá'í Faith is a religion that follows the teachings of Bahá'u'lláh. These teachings stem from the central core beliefs that all people are members of one human family, that we are meant to live together in peace and harmony, and that there is one God and all religions come from that Divine Source, bringing guidance to humanity that reflect the needs of the day and age.

Who are the Bahá'ís of Irving?

The Bahá'í community of Irving is one of many throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Area. Together with our friends and neighbors, we are engage in community-building activities throughout Irving and North Texas to create a more spiritually and materially balanced and unified future for everyone. We invite anyone who shares in this vision to participate.

What do Bahá'ís do?

Like Bahá'í communities across the United States and throughout the world, here in Irving we work to apply the teachings of Bahá'u'lláh to the realities of our community and daily lives through:

  • Virtues classes for children that teach children about the core spiritual foundations that are at the heart of all faiths
  • Junior Youth groups where young people channel their energy and spiritual capacity into service that works towards a more just and unified society
  • Training programs designed to help develop our capacity for making a meaningful contribution to society in our daily lives
  • Devotionals open to all who wish to contribute their prayers for a peace and prosperity
