Freemasonry is the oldest and largest fraternal organization in the world. Its members share a common goal of helping each other become better men. Its body of knowledge and system of ethics is based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to improve himself while being devoted to his family, faith, country, and fraternity. Its roots go back centuries and its members are diverse: farmers, high profile leaders, physicians, construction workers…and maybe you.
Freemasonry is not a secret society. We clearly communicate our presence, and Masons are proud to display the familiar masonic logo on their cars, clothing, and buildings.
Freemasonry does, however, have a few key secrets that are used for two primary reasons: (1) to prove to each other that we are Masons, and (2) as a bond between members – showing that we can honorably keep our word.
Despite popular conspiratorial belief, Freemasonry will not make you rich, powerful, or famous. Individuals seeking fame, power, or wealth should look elsewhere, as Freemasonry has nothing to offer you in these areas.
