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.
