Actor, author and activist Rainn Wilson, star of ‘The Office’ and founder of Soul Pancake, will be visiting Lake Oswego! Come join us as he speaks candidly and humorously about the Baha’i Faith and his own spiritual journey. This event is free and open to all regardless of background or belief. Space is limited, so please RSVP in advance.


What is the Baha’i Faith?

At a time of rapid change in the world today, humanity needs, more then ever, a unified vision of the nature and purpose of our lives and of the future of our society. Such a vision unfolds within the writings of Bahá’u’lláh, the Prophet Founder of the Bahá’í Faith. 

The Bahá’í community in Lake Oswego and all around the world is exploring Bahá’u’lláh’s spiritual teachings with people of all backgrounds and is learning how this vision of the oneness of mankind, best expressed by the principle of unity in diversity, can be translated into action for the betterment of the world.

What Baha’is Believe


Though known by many names and understood in different ways, there is only one God, the Creator of the Universe and all that lies therein.



There is no one true religion. All the world’s faiths come from the same divine Source.



There is only one race, the human race, beautiful in all its diversity.

Bahá’ís believe that throughout history, God has sent to humanity, according to the needs of the time, a series of Divine Educators, known as Manifestations of God. These Divine Educators include Abraham, Krishna, Moses, Buddha, Zoroaster, Jesus, Muhammad, the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh. Their distinct social and spiritual teachings have guided humanity’s efforts to advance civilisation. 

Bahá’u’lláh, the most recent of these Divine Educators, teaches that humanity is on a path to maturity, much like an individual who progresses through various stages of development. The current turmoil in the world can be viewed as humanity experiencing the turbulence of adolescence. 

The writings of Bahá’u’lláh provide a wealth of spiritual teachings that assist us in progressing on this path towards maturity, and in building a peaceful and unified world.
