Freemasonry is a system of morality, veiled in allegory that produces an organized society of men symbolically applying the principles of operative masonry and architecture to the science and art of character building. In other words, the goal of Freemasonry is to make good men better.
Through the improvement and strengthening of the individual man, Freemasonry seeks to improve the community. We do this by impressing upon our members the principles of personal righteousness and personal responsibility. We hold such ideals as liberty, equality, and religious toleration. By enlightening the mind and promoting peace, understanding and the basic tenets of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth, we improve our lives and hopefully the lives of our families.
