The Baha'i Faith was founded by Baha'u'llah in 19th century Persia.  Baha'is believe in the oneness of humanity, harmony of religions, and that Baha'u'llah is the fulfillment of the end-time promises of earlier scriptures. Baha'i Faith teaches that humanity is undergoing an evolutionary process, and the need of the presesnt time is for the gradual establishment of peace, justice and unity on a global scale. Worship is primarily an individual decision and involves three obligatory prayers. Fellowship occasions take place in homes. A nineteen month calendar has a feast day on the first day of each month when Bahá'is gather to worship, discuss community business and socialize.
