Some of the principles of the Bahá’í Faith upon which a new world civilization should be founded include:
Recognition of the essential oneness of the world's great religions, which we believe are all Divine in origin and are progressive expressions of God’s Revelation for humanity.
Responsibility of each individual to investigate truth for him or herself, without bias or pre-conceptions.
Elimination of all forms of prejudice; whether racial, religious, national, or economic.
Bahá'ís believe that, until the reality of gender equality is fully established, and until women receive the same rights, privileges and opportunities as men, the highest social and spiritual development of humankind will not be possible.
The need for provision of education to all of humanity.
