The Bahá'í Faith's global scope is reflected in the composition of its membership, which represents a cross section of humanity. Bahá'ís come from nearly every country, ethnicity, culture, profession, social class, and economic class. Over 2,100 ethnic and tribal groups are represented.

The Bahá'ís of the world form a single united community, which is free of schism or factions, and comprise what is very likely "the most diverse and widespread organized body of people on earth."

The Founder of Bahá'í Faith's was Bahá'u'lláh (which is a title meaning "The Glory of God"). He was Persian nobleman from Teheran who, in the 1800's, forsook a princely existence of comfort and security for a life of persecution and deprivation because of His teachings.

Bahá'u'lláh proclaimed to be a new Messenger from God, and established a fully independent religion called the Bahá'í Faith. His life, work, and influence parallel that of other Messengers of God, including Abraham, Krishna, Moses, Zoroaster, Buddha, Christ, and Muhammad. His followers, Bahá'ís, believe that Bahá'u'lláh is the most recent in a succession of Divine Messengers.

The essential message that Bahá'u'lláh brought is that of unity. Among the principles that He taught are that there is only one God, that there is only one human race, and that all the world's major religions have been stages in the revelation of God's will and purpose for humanity.
