Commitment

Delegating responsibility also increases the level of participation and helps those involved develop a sense of loyalty and commitment to the Faith and to the Bahá’í community. Delegation means assigning responsibilities to committees and individuals, and authorizing them to take the actions required to carry out their responsibilities.

Emphasis should be placed on sound business practices, honest contractual agreements and firm commitments.
(Office of Social and Economic Development at the World Center, approved by the Universal House of Justice, NSA USA - Developing Distinctive Bahá’í Communities)


For all properties, either owned or leased, a written purchase agreement or rental agreement is essential, as is a properly recorded deed or lease. Legal counsel should review and, if necessary, modify the purchase or rental agreement before the officers of the Spiritual Assembly sign it or make any written commitments. No oral commitments should be made for real property.

Trustworthiness is one of the great qualities which must characterize Bahá’ís, and the new believer therefore, far from repudiating any commitments entered into before becoming a Bahá’í, must be ever more conscientious in discharging them.
