The Baha'i Faith: Uniting the world one heart at a time

About us

The Baha'is of Evanston are engaged in a process of spiritual community building that is underway around the world. Through an educational process that connects children, youth and adults with the transformative power of the Word of God, everyone advances together on a path of learning, action and reflection. 

Our prayer meetings, classes for children and teens, study circles, and other activities generally take place in homes, community centers, and other locations around Evanston.

This process of personal and collective transformation is open to everyone, and everyone is warmly welcomed to participate–being a member is not required.  The Baha’i Faith places great emphasis on the independent investigation of truth, so everyone’s path of exploration, worship and service is respected and honored.

To contact or get engaged with the Evanston Baha’i Community – or just to ask a simple question – please contact us or check out the calendar.

 

 

Baha'i Sacred Writings

Valley in SwitzerlandI was but a man like others, asleep upon My couch, when lo, the breezes of the All-Glorious were wafted over Me, and taught Me the knowledge of all that hath been. This thing is not from Me, but from One Who is Almighty and All-Knowing … His all-compelling summons hath reached Me, and caused Me to speak His praise admidst all people. I was indeed as one dead when His behest was uttered. The hand of the will of thy Lord, the Compassionate, the Merciful, transformed Me.

~ Bahá’u’lláh
