Welcome to the Alaska Bahá'í Website

Progressive revelation is a core teaching in the Bahá'í Faith that suggests that religious truth is revealed by God progressively over time through a series of divine Messengers, and that the teachings are tailored to suit the needs of the time and place of their appearance.

Baha'is are followers of Baha'u'llah. The title Baha'u'llah means the Glory of God. Baha'u'llah, the latest of these Divine Messengers from God, teaches that a just and peaceful global society in now possible.

For more than a century, Bahá'ís in Alaska have striven to give expression to the oneness of humanity, a core principle of their faith, by seeking to eliminate racial prejudice, advance the equality of women and men, and build vibrant spiritual communities that reflect the human family in all its diversity.

A new understanding of religion

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.

Learning to put beliefs into action

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.
