"To a Freemason the freedom of thought, speech and action belongs to all Mankind, regardless of race, religion or gender."

Qualities of a Freemason

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 with its own teachings, symbols and message. Thus the Freemason is taught by experience to serve God, help his fellow man and better himself.

In essence, Freemasonry is a great quest for Light and her members, Knights and Protectors of that Light.

A Freemason's foundation is founded on the principles of human solidarity, freedom of conscience and the facts of Brotherhood. It places no restrictions on the search after truth, and in order to secure that freedom, it demands the greatest tolerance from all members of the Order. To a Freemason the freedom of thought, speech and action belongs to all Mankind, regardless of race, religion or gender.

In accordance with the ancient declaration of Freemasonry, Freemasons assert the existence of a Supreme Power under the name of "The Great Architect of the Universe," yet at the same time leaving Human Reason at perfect liberty to differ in regard to His Attributes. Freemasonry is not a religion and possesses no theology, dogma or promise of salvation. However, it is a religious organization in that it seeks to aid each of its members in their search after truth and light and encourages them to practice their faith diligently. Yet, Freemasonry demands that each Freemason be tolerant to the beliefs of others no matter how different they may be.

Freemasonry is open to both men and women of any race or religion, who believes in a Supreme Being and having a strong moral character wishes to perfect humanity by service to God and his fellow creatures.

"Whenever you find yourself fighting ignorance and intolerance, you will find yourself living in the teachings of Freemasonry"  - The Very Ills. Bro. Magdalena I. Cumsille 33o, The Most Sovereign Grand Commander.

How does Freemasonry help one grow?

"That which causes us trials shall yield us triumph: and that which make our hearts ache shall fill us with gladness. The only true happiness is to learn, to advance, and to improve: which could not happen unless we had commenced with error, ignorance, and imperfection. We must pass through the darkness, to reach the light."

- Bro. Albert Pike
