Masonic
Philosophy

 

Masonry is the world's first and largest fraternal organization. It is based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to improve himself and help make the world a better place.

As Masons, we lead by example, give back to our communities, and support numerous Masonic philanthropies. We invest in children, our neighborhoods, and our future.

Our values
The rich traditions and core values of our centuries-old fraternity are relevant today and will endure for centuries to come.

Ethics
Masons practice a lifestyle based on honor, integrity, and philanthropic values. Masons believe that things like honesty, compassion, trust, and knowledge are important.

Tolerance
The fraternity transcends religious, ethnic, cultural, social, and educational differences. We respect others' opinions and strive to grow and develop as human beings.

Personal growth
Our continuing pursuit of knowledge, ethics, and leadership skills makes us better men and brings more meaning to our lives.

Philanthropy
We are committed to make a difference in our world through community service, volunteerism, and charity.

Family
Strong family relationships are important, and we include our families in many of our activities. Striving to be better husbands, fathers, and family members enhances our fellowship.
