What Is Freemasonry?
Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest secular fraternal societies. Freemasonry is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. It’s members are taught precepts by a series of ritual dramas, which follow ancient forms and use Stonemason’s customs and tools as allegorical guides. Freemasonry demands from its members a respect for the laws of the country in which a man works and lives. Its principles do not conflict with its members duties as citizens, but should strengthen them in fulfilling their private and public responsibilities. The use by a Freemason of his membership to promote his own or anyone else's business, professional or personal interests is condemned, and is contrary to the condition on which he sought admission to the Fraternity. His duty as a citizen must always prevail over any obligation to other Freemasons, and any attempt to shield a Freemason who has acted dishonorably or unlawfully is contrary to this prime duty.

What Do Freemasons Believe?
Freemasons adhere to "The Three Great Principals Of Freemasonry".

Brotherly Love: Every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and behave with kindness and understanding to his fellow man.

Relief: Freemasons are taught to practice charity, and to care, not only for their own but also for the community as a whole, both by charitable giving, and by voluntary efforts and works as individuals.

Truth: Freemasons strive for truth, requiring high moral standards and aiming to achieve them in their own lives.

Freemasons believe that these principals represent a way of achieving higher standards in life.

What Are The Requirements For Freemasonry?
The essential qualification for admission into and continuing membership is a belief in a Supreme Being. Membership is open to men of any race or religion who can fulfill this essential qualification and are of good repute.
