Thank you for visiting the San Diego Bahá’í website. This is the place where you can learn more about the San Diego Bahá’í community, its activities, and how to get in touch with us.
The name, Bahá’í (pronounced “ba-ha-e”), means “follower of Bahá’u’lláh”. Bahá’ís are part of a world-wide community of faith, devoted to God and service to mankind. There are approximately 6 million Bahá’ís in over 232 sovereign countries and territories across the globe. In just over a hundred and fifty years the Bahá’í Faith has become the world’s second most widespread religion in the world.
The Bahá’í family in San Diego comprises people from all backgrounds and walks of life. Inspired by belief in the oneness of humanity, the oneness of religion and the oneness of God, Bahá’ís come together for devotional, community, and humanitarian activities. Together we are striving to build a community that demonstrates practical solutions to the challenges of modern society. We believe that our experience is a source of optimism for all who share our vision of humanity as one global family, and the earth as one homeland.
The Bahá’í Faith is administered by elected bodies at local, national and international levels. It does not have clergy or individuals in positions of personal leadership. We therefore promote personal investigation and questioning and hope that you will find these pages as a good starting point to your search. The information on these pages is updated often. We hope that you will enjoy the information currently put together here, and we look forward to hearing your suggestions and ideas. We appreciate your visit and invite you back to come and visit us again.
