As Emily Armstrong headed to college at the age of 17, she was a perfectionist, wanted to be an adult, and desired to assert her independence. For her, the ultimate statement of such independence was joining the Bahá’i faith, a religion she believed would ensure perfect order in the world — “no more war, poverty, or racism. One language, one currency, and equality of the sexes.” A “perfect” faith for a perfectionist.
The Baháʼí Faith teaches the essential worth of all religions and the unity of all people. Established in 1863, it is estimated to have between 5 and 8 million adherents spreads throughout most of the world's countries and territories. Find out how the message of God's love is reaching the Bahá'i world and how you can be involved.
