The Bahá’í Faith is a globally united religion which promotes diversity of cultural expression and peaceful coexistence of all religious beliefs. The cornerstone of Bahá’í identity is service to others. By bringing our teachings to life we are fulfilling the true purpose of religion, which is fellowship among all the peoples of the earth.
At the local level here in Thunder Bay, we welcome the whole family to participate in activities that contribute to vibrant communities. Children’s class, junior youth groups, study circles for adults and prayers gatherings for friends of all ages. The greatest benefits of these activities can be realized when the entire family engages a process of transformation together.
Because the oneness of humanity is the central teaching of the Bahá’í Faith, every aspect of a Bahá’í life is geared towards building and maintaining unity — in the family, neighbourhood, workplace, community, nation and world.
The Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program is a global movement inspiring young people, parents, and community members to work together toward a better world.
Bahá’ís see the young as the most precious treasure a community can possess. In them are the promise and guarantee of the future.
The nature of the training institute can be understood by imagining an ongoing conversation taking place among friends in thousands upon thousands of social spaces.
Bahá’ís across Thunder Bay join with friends and neighbours in devotional meetings for collective worship.
