Welcome to the Tarbiyat Baha’i Community under the continuing Guardianship website. We are an international organized community of Baha’is who accept the Teachings of Baha’u’llah, Founder of the Baha’i Faith, and uphold the validity of the continuing Guardianship of the Cause of God.

We believe that the institution of the Guardianship was established to provide spiritual guidance to the Baha’i World. The Faith has been without that necessary spiritual leadership since the death of the first Guardian, Shoghi Effendi, in 1957. We believe a lineal descendant of Baha’u’llah will arise to take up the mantle of the Guardianship in the future.

In the meantime, this community of believers is led by a Council of “Regents” who serve no other purpose than to unite Baha’is in anticipation of that day when the second Guardian arises to restore spiritual guidance to the Faith and reunify the Baha’i World. We currently have members worldwide.

To learn more about our specific community, please take a look at our Position Paper.

“Religion should unite all hearts and cause wars and disputes to vanish from the face of the earth,
give birth to spirituality, and bring life and light to each heart.”
