The Western New York Baha’i Community
We would like to welcome you to this website and encourage you to explore its contents. The Western New York Baha’i community is a vibrant and diverse collection of people of many different ages and races from all over the world. As a community, we frequently hold activities which are open to all who would like to attend. The majority of our events are centered on promoting the principles and ideals of the Baha’i Faith while still striving to gain a deeper understanding of them. Baha’ullah the Prophet founder of the Baha’i Faith once wrote “The betterment of the world can be accomplished through pure and goodly deeds, through commendable and seemly conduct”. We invite you to join us on our quest towards achieving this aim no matter who you are or where you came from.
Statement on Baha’u’llah
… the crucial need of the human race is to find a unifying vision of the nature of man and society. For the past century humanity’s response to this impulse has driven a succession of ideological upheavals that have convulsed our world and that appear now to have exhausted themselves. The passion invested in the struggle, despite its disheartening results, testifies to the depth of the need. For, without a common conviction about the course and direction of human history, it is inconceivable that foundations can be laid for a global society to which the mass of humankind can commit themselves.
