Baha’i Community of Nashville
Bahá’s come from virtually every national, ethnic and religious background, making the Bahá’í Faith the second-most widespread religion in the world. The Bahá’í Faith is the youngest of the world’s independent religions. Since its inception in Persia (now Iran) in 1844, it has grown to more than five million followers in 236 countries and territories. Bahá’ís believe in one loving Creator, one unfolding religion and one human family.
The worldwide Bahá’í community is working to give practical expression to Bahá’u’lláh’s vision of world unity by putting his writings into practice and living out core Bahá’í teachings. Bahá’ís advocate for spiritual solutions based on the Teachings of Bahá’u’lláh on issues such as the elimination of all forms of prejudice with an emphasis on race unity, the equality of women and men, the spiritual education of children, the importance of family cohesion, and the establishment of world peace.
The Bahá’í Faith has been an active part of religious and social life in Middle Tennessee since the 1930s.
