The Bahá’í Community of Papua New Guinea is estimated at approximately 60,000 and is representative of the country’s rich cultural and ethnic diversity. 

Bahá'ís can be found in every province and in most of the Districts of Papua New Guinea.

This relatively small community has been able to make an impact in the localities that they reside in, by offering various community-building initiatives aimed at raising the capacity among the residents of their areas to take charge of their own spiritual, social, and intellectual development.

Bahá’ís hail from all walks of life. Young and old, men and women alike, they live alongside others in every land and belong to every nation. They share a common goal of serving humanity and refining their inner-lives in accordance with the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh.

The community to which they belong is one of learning and action, free from any sense of superiority or claim to exclusive understanding of truth. It is a community that strives to cultivate hope for the future of humanity, to foster purposeful effort, and to celebrate the endeavours of all those in the world who work to promote unity and alleviate human sufferin
