Welcome to the website of the Fresno Bahá’í Community.
The Bahá’í Faith is a worldwide religion that has been in existence for over 170 years. Bahá’ís believe that the crucial need facing humanity today is to find a unifying vision of the future of society and of the nature and purpose of life. Such a vision unfolds in the writings of Bahá’u’lláh; and in thousands upon thousands of locations around the world, the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh inspire individuals and communities as they work to improve their own lives and contribute to the advancement of civilization.
Throughout history, God has sent to humanity a series of divine Educators—known as Manifestations of God—whose teachings have provided the basis for the advancement of civilization. Bahá’u’lláh, the latest of these Messengers, explained that the religions of the world come from the same Source and are in essence successive chapters of one religion from God.
