Welcome to the Bahá’í Community of Calgary!
Throughout history, God has revealed Himself to humanity through a series of divine Messengers, whose teachings guide and educate us and provide the basis for the advancement of human society. These Messengers have included Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad. Their religions come from the same Source and are in essence successive chapters of one religion from God.
Bahá’u’lláh, the latest of these Messengers, brought new spiritual and social teachings for our time. His essential message is of unity. He taught the oneness of God, the oneness of the human family, and the oneness of religion.
Bahá’u’lláh said, “The earth is but one country and mankind its citizens,” and that, as foretold in all the sacred scriptures of the past, now is the time for humanity to live in unity.
Bahá’u’lláh was born 200 years ago and people around the world will be celebrating His bicentennial in October 2017. You are invited to a Bicentennial Gala in Calgary and to many other gatherings around the city!
Founded more than a century and a half ago, the Bahá’í Faith has spread around the globe. Members of the Bahá’í Faith live in more than 100,000 localities and come from nearly every nation, ethnic group, culture, profession, and social or economic background.
Bahá’ís believe the crucial need facing humanity is to find a unifying vision of the nature and purpose of life and of the future of society. Such a vision unfolds in the writings of Bahá’u’lláh.
We invite you to learn about the Bahá’í Faith, our community and get involved in transformative neighbourhood activities taking place throughout our city. Together with thousands of other communities, we are working to build a peaceful society from the community up!
What is happening in Calgary?
Children are joyfully learning spiritual principles… junior youth are strengthening their moral identities and becoming empowered to impact the world… and people of all backgrounds are transforming their neighbourhoods through study and devotion… You are warmly welcomed to walk with us in these endeavours.
We do not have a central place of worship, but live, work and worship throughout the City of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
