Less than two centuries after its founding, the Baha'i Faith has become the second-most geographically widespread religion in the world and the second-largest religion in South Carolina.


religion renewed for a changing world

Baha'is believe that throughout history, God has sent Divine Educators to guide the advancement of civilization. Baha'u'llah (1817-1892), the latest of these Messengers, taught that a just and peaceful global society is the next stage in humanity's collective development.

In South Carolina, across the United States, and around the world, Baha'is seek to give practical expression to the oneness of humanity, the core principle of their faith. With open hearts and open minds, they work with people of all religions--or of no religion--to eliminate racial prejudice, advance the equality of men and women, and build vibrant communities that are both spiritually and materially prosperous.

This is the Day in which God’s most excellent favors have been poured out upon men, the Day in which His most mighty grace hath been infused into all created things. It is incumbent upon all the peoples of the world to reconcile their differences, and, with perfect unity and peace, abide beneath the shadow of the Tree of His care and loving-kindness.
— Baha'u'llah
