The central principle of the Baha’i Faith is the oneness of humanity. It is the hallmark of the teachings of the Founder of the Faith, Baha'u'llah.
There is one God, Who has sent a succession of Divine Educators in the form of Prophets (or "Manifestations" of God)
The teachings of these Divine Educators have been the chief civilizing force in human society.
All of the great religions come from the same divine source, like a series of chapters in a book, and they have the same essential purpose: to guide and educate the peoples of the world.
The Bahá'í Faith recognizes the unity of God and of His Prophets, upholds the principle of an unfettered search after truth, condemns all forms of superstition and prejudice, teaches that the fundamental purpose of religion is to promote concord and harmony, that it must go hand-in-hand with science, and that it constitutes the sole and ultimate basis of a peaceful, an ordered and progressive society. It inculcates the principle of equal opportunity, rights and privileges for both sexes, advocates compulsory education, abolishes extremes of poverty and wealth, exalts work performed in the spirit of service to the rank of worship, recommends the adoption of an auxiliary international language, and provides the necessary agencies for the establishment and safeguarding of a permanent and universal peace.
