WHAT IS FREEMASONRY?

Freemasonry (or Masonry) is dedicated to the Brotherhood of Man under the Fatherhood of God. It uses the tools and implements of ancient architectural craftsmen symbolically in a system of instruction designed to build character and moral values in its members. Its singular purpose is to make good men better. Its bonds of friendship, compassion, and brotherly love have survived even the most divisive political, military, and religious conflicts through the centuries.

Freemasonry is a fraternity which encourages its members to practice the faith of their personal acceptance. Masonry teaches that each person, through self-improvement and helping others, has an obligation to make a difference for good in the world.

Several Masonic Principles Are:

  • Faith must be the center of our lives.

  • All men and women are the children of God.

  • No one has the right to tell another person what he or she must think or believe.

  • Each person has a resonsibility to be a good citizen, obeying the law.

  • It is important to work to make the world a better place for all.

  • Honor and integrity are keys to a meaningful life.
