We are the Baha'i Community of Oak Park, Illinois.

The Baha'i Faith is an independent world religion practiced throughout the world by more than 5 million people of nearly every nationality and ethnic background. They are attracted to the Faith by the belief that we all belong to one human race, that all religions share a common source and aim, and that the long-awaited era of peace promised by God in the world's sacred scriptures is now within reach.

Core principles of the Baha'i Faith include:

  • Elimination of all forms of prejudice
  • Equality between men and women
  • Harmony of science and religion
  • World peace upheld by a world government
  • Spiritual solutions to economic problems
  • Universal education
