“Ye are all the leaves of one tree and the drops of one ocean.”
Bahá’ís have been members of the Marianas community for nearly 70 years. CHamorus, Carolinians, and members of the many ethnic groups represented in the Marianas’ population make up the Bahá’í Community today and continue the work begun when the first resident Bahá’ís arrived on Guam.
The Bahá’í Faith promotes the unity of mankind through diversity. It calls for the spiritual renewal of the individual and the community; loyalty to government, and adherence to the laws of the country. It promotes the equality of men and women and the eradication of all prejudice. It emphasizes the importance of education and wholeheartedly seeks the advancement of children and youth.
The Bahá’í Faith has no clergy; it is through the efforts of its members, in conversation with their friends and neighbors, that the message of the Faith is shared. Bahá’ís open their homes to everyone seeking information about the Faith and welcome everyone to its classes on spiritual transformation, prayer, and the meaning of life and death; to devotional meeting; and to special classes for children and youth on spiritual development.
