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

HDR Efex ProVerily I am Thy servant, O my God, and Thy poor one and Thy suppliant and Thy wretched creature. I have arrived at Thy gate, seeking Thy shelter. I have found no contentment save in Thy love, no exultation except in Thy remembrance, no eagerness but in obedience to Thee, no joy save in Thy nearness, and no tranquillity except in reunion with Thee, notwithstanding that I am conscious that all created things are debarred from Thy sublime Essence and the entire creation is denied access to Thine inmost Being.
