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

The best beloved of all things in My sight is Justice; turn not away therefrom if thou desirest Me, and neglect it not that I may confide in thee. By its aid thou shalt see with thine own eyes and not through the eyes of others, and shalt know of thine own knowledge and not through the knowledge of thy neighbor. Ponder this in thy heart; how it behooveth thee to be. Verily justice is My gift to thee and the sign of My loving-kindness. Set it then before thine eyes.

~ Bahá’u’lláh
