Around the world, millions of people from every racial, ethnic, religious, and national background have embraced the vision of a united humanity described in the Baháʼí Sacred Text. The challenges currently facing humanity - climate change, racism, sexism, and other forms of prejudice, ever-worsening income inequality - demand new solutions and structures that call upon both the transforming power of religion and the tools of science, while recognizing the capacity inherent in every human soul.

“The well-being of mankind, its peace and security, are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established. This unity can never be achieved so long as the counsels which the Pen of the Most High hath revealed are suffered to pass unheeded.”

In Castro Valley, Bahá'ís and their friends come together in an environment of love and trust to build a community that welcomes everyone. We warmly invite you to join us in walking this path of service, through local service projects, classes for the spiritual empowerment of children and youth, or devotional gatherings to find inspiration. We believe it’s time to build a vibrant spiritual community reflecting the human family in all its diversity, and we do this work in our neighborhoods across Castro Valley, Ashland, Cherryland, San Lorenzo, unincorporated Alameda County west of 680, and all around the world.
