Freemasonry is an ancient system designed to impart
morality, ethics and teach mutual service to its members. Instead of
lecture or sermon, Freemasonry instructs its members by the performance of
ceremonial degrees, each one with its own distinct teachings, symbols and
message. Thus the Freemason is taught by experience to serve God, help his
fellow man and better himself.
Composed of Freemasons of both sexes, fraternally united without distinction of race, religion or creed,
The Honorable Order of American Co-Masonry has established a system of workings that is both ceremonial and
symbolic that allows its members to erect a Mystic Temple to The Great Architect of the Universe and to the
Perfection of Humanity.
With the knowledge that Masonry provides the best means for the Perfecting of Humanity, The Co-Masonic Order aspires
to attain its ideals by creating an international organization that extends Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth
to all its members. American Co-Masonry has established a Masonic Government that ensures the maximum liberty
compatible with a voluntarily accepted discipline, organized upon the precepts of the Ancient Mystery Schools
and the Scottish Rite.
The Order seeks above all to realize on earth the highest degree of moral, intellectual, and spiritual development
for all Mankind; this being the prerequisite for all happiness that each individual can attain in a fraternally-organized
Co-Masonry professes no dogma. Instead, its purpose is to search for Truth. In Lodges, discussions and debates on social,
philosophical, or religious questions have no other purpose than the intellectual enlightenment of its members, and thus
enabling them to reach for a greater understanding of themselves and Humanity, all in the pursuit of fulfilling their
duties as Freemasons.
