What is Freemasonry?

Freemasonry is the worlds oldest and largest Fraternity. Its history and tradition date to antiquity. Its singular purpose is to make good men better. Its bonds of friendship, compassion and brotherly love have survived even the most diverse political, military and religious conflicts through the centuries. Freemasonry is neither a forum nor a place for worship. Instead, it is a friend of all religions which are based on the belief in one God.

Who are Freemasons?

Many of our nation’s earliest patriots were Freemasons, as well as thirteen signers of the Constitution and fourteen Presidents of the United States, beginning with George Washington. Today, the more than four million Freemasons around the world come from virtually every occupation and profession. Within the Fraternity, however, they all meet as equals. They come from diverse political ideologies, but they meet as friends. They come from virtually every religious belief, but they all believe in a Supreme Being. One of the most fascinating aspects of Freemasonry has always been that so many men, from so many different walks of life, can meet together in peace, never have any political or religious debates, always conduct their affairs in harmony and friendship, and call each “Brother!”

What do Freemasons believe in?

All Freemasons believe in the existence of a Supreme Being and in respect for each other.

What do Freemasons do?

Freemasons are respectable citizens who are taught to conform to the moral laws of society and to abide by the laws of the government under which they live. They are men of charity and good works. They remain unchallenged as the worlds greatest philanthropy. The Freemasons of America contribute almost two million dollars every day to charitable causes which they, alone, have established. These services to mankind represent an unparalleled example of the humanitarian commitment and concern of this unique and honorable Fraternity.

What are the qualifications to be a Freemason?

Freemasonry is proud of its philosophy and practice of “making good men better.” Only individuals believed to be of the finest character are favorably considered for membership. Every applicant must advocate his belief in the existence of a Supreme Being (atheists are not accepted into the Fraternity).

How does one become a Freemason?

2B1Ask1 - Any man seeking membership in Freemasonry must ask a Masonic friend to recommend him. He must sign a petition, stating his age, occupation and place of residence. Members of the Lodge vote on admission after careful consideration of the character and reputation of the applicant.

What is the Masonic Lodge?

The Masonic Lodge meets regularly to conduct its regular business and vote upon Petitions for Membership. It is here where the bonds of friendship and fellowship are strengthened.
