Welcome to

The Baha'is of D.C.



The DC Baha'i community is as diverse as the city we live in. All races, ages, and social classes come together to create a warm and authentic sense of community. What the members of this community share in common is their adherence to the Baha'i Faith.

The Baha'i Faith is the youngest of the world’s independent monotheistic religions. Founded in Iran in 1844, it now has more than six million adherents in 236 countries and territories. Baha'is come from nearly every national, ethnic and religious background, making the Baha'i Faith the second-most-widespread religion in the world.
