New international website of the Baha'i community launched
HAIFA, Israel — The website of the worldwide Baha'i community at www.bahai.org has been launched in a new version, representing the latest stage in the development of an official presence on the Web that extends back to 1996. The site explores the beliefs and writings of the Baha'i Faith and presents the experience of those throughout the world who, inspired by the teachings of Baha'u'llah, are striving to contribute to the betterment of society.
The revised site highlights two broad sections – "What Baha'is Believe" and "What Baha'is Do" – and features a new presentation of the Baha'i Reference Library.
The section entitled "What Baha'is Believe" aims to organize a selection of central beliefs of the Baha'i Faith into a few thematic areas, such as The Life of the Spirit, God and His Creation, and Universal Peace. "What Baha'is Do" explores how Baha'is, together with those who share their aspirations, are working for social progress.
The site also includes a new version of the Baha'i Reference Library, the authoritative online source of the Baha'i writings, containing selected works of Baha'u'llah, The Bab, 'Abdu'l-Baha, Shoghi Effendi, and the Universal House of Justice, as well as other Baha'i texts.
