Tarbiyat Baha'i Community
National House of Justice of the Orthodox Baha'is of the United States and Canada. Includes a position paper aimed at "Sans Guardian Baha'is", which explains the origins of the organisation and events associated with their current isolation from the Universal House of Justice.
Rex King then formed his own group called "Baha'i: Orthodox Community"in Las Vegas, New Mexico. They said that Remey was not "Guardian" but rather merely a "Regent", and that the IBC was a "Council of Regents"to rule the Faith until a true descendant of Baha'u'llah would comeforward and become Guardian (the Regents would declare him such). King appointed himself the next Regent, and his own family members fellow"Regents". This group later named themselves "Baha'i: Tarbiyat Community".
We are an 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. The institution of the Guardianship was established to provide spiritual guidance to the Baha'i World. The Faith has been without that necessary leadership since the death of the first Guardian, Shoghi Effendi, in 1957. they 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. To learn more about our specific community, please take a look at our Position Paper.


Welcome to our newest believer
Samuel Joseph Honner is the newest member of our
community, residing in Australia. Below is an excerpt
from his declaration letter:
Hi again, Jess!
I’ve thought long and hard about becoming a
Tarbiyat Baha’i. I feel it truly does encapsulate the
faith Baha’u’llah taught, which is one of tolerance,
intelligence, and a non-fundamentalism (sanity). I must
say, especially during the last two weeks of study in the
Tarbiyat Baha’i Community (and the Baha’i writings, etc.)
I’ve found a great excitement (at lack of a better word)
towards God and the Baha’i religion. Coming from the
Heterodox Baha’i Faith, the Tarbiyat Baha’i Community is
truly refreshing!
