BECOME A MASON
Freemasonry is the oldest, largest fraternity in the world. Our lodge is always ready to welcome good men into the fraternity, and we welcome you to visit our lodge if you can answer YES to these questions.
Do you believe that there is such a thing as honor, and that a man has a responsibility to act with honor in everything he does?
Masonic lessons teach principle. Masons believe that a life not founded on honor is hollow and empty, and that a man who acts without honor is less than a man.
No atheist can be a Mason. Masons do not concern themselves with your individual faith, as this is a question between only you and your God; however, we do require that a that a man believe in a Supreme Being.
Are you willing to allow others the same right to their own beliefs that you insist on yourself?
Masons insists on toleration, and on the right of each person to think for himself in religious, social and political matters.
Do you believe that you have a responsibility to leave the world a better place than you found it?
Masonry teaches that every man has a duty not only to himself, but to the whole of mankind. Masons must do what they can to make the world a better place.
Do you believe that it is more important to give than to receive?
Masons are involved in many civic and Masonic charities because we are obligated to help others in need. Much of our help is given anonymously, as Masons are not seeking fame or accolades. Gratitude comes from helping others overcome adversity to improve their lives.
Do you feel that there's something more to life than financial success?
Masonry regards no man for his worldly wealth or possessions. Masons know that self-development is more precious than money in the bank, or social position, or political power. Masons work at building their lives and character.
Do you believe that a person should strive to be a good citizen and that we have a moral duty to be true to the country in which we live?
A Mason is true to his government and its ideals. He supports its laws and authority when both are just and equitably applied.
Are you willing to give help to a fraternal brother when he needs it, and to accept their help when you need it?
Masonry teaches and requires mutual help and understanding among its Brothers.
Do you believe that men should strive to live a brotherly life?
Masons see Brotherhood as a form of wisdom and a bond that holds men together. It is a private friendship that requires us to be just in our dealings, and to refuse to speak evil of each other.
