Throughout history, God has sent Divine Educators to guide the advancement of civilization.
Bahá'u'lláh, the latest of these Messengers, taught that a just and peaceful global society is 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.
