The Bahá’í Covenant A study resource on the Covenant of Bahá’u’lláh

The Covenant in the Bahá’í Faith creates and maintains a unified religious community.

Bahá’u’lláh’s Covenant serves as the pivot of faith for a vibrant and growing global community. The Covenant both unifies the followers of His Faith and safeguards the integrity of His Faith’s unique, “world-embracing system.” This new Covenant of universal fellowship is “the axis of the oneness of the world of humanity,” providing an “enduring foundation” for the spiritual, social and administrative development of the Bahá’í community. Its light is “the educator of the minds” and “the hearts” of all peoples, a reality operating within every soul and between all souls.
