The Bahá’ís of Spokane

There is one God called by many names and perfections

We are all members of one human family

The core teachings of the great religions of the world represent expressions of God's eternal love for the peoples of all ethnicities & cultures of the planet, a single process of spiritual education of all peoples of the globe.
