What is a Freemason?

What are Masons?
A group (fraternity) of men who enjoy sharing the virtues of honesty, morality, integrity and tolerance.

What do Masons do?
Masons contribute, not necessarily monetarily, but by living their lives in such a manner that the world is better just because they live in it.

What do you get out of Masonry?
Most men get the realization that it is not necessary to receive something tangible for every good act or deed performed.

Is Masonry a religion?
NO! To become a Mason, a man must profess a belief in God; however, Masonry is not a religion, a substitute for, or a rival of any doctrine. Masonry does not perform functions of a church, has no sacraments, and makes no claim to save souls or reform sinners.

How do you join?
You must ask a Master Mason and he in turn will be happy to guide you, and more pertinent information will be provided.

A Mason is a man who professes a faith in God. As a man of faith, he uses the tools of moral and ethical truths to serve mankind.

A Mason binds himself to like-minded men in a brotherhood that transcends all religious, ethnic, social, cultural, and educational differences.

In fellowship with his brothers, a Mason finds ways in which to serve his God, his family, his fellow man, and his country.

A Mason is dedicated. He recognizes his responsibility justice, truth, charity, honesty and integrity in all aspects of human endeavor.

A Mason is all this and more.
