The Principles of Freemasonry


The Principles of Freemasonry

Freemasonry is a fraternal organization dedicated to Brotherly 
Love, Relief and Truth. 

Brotherly Love: How a man chooses to practice his personal 
religious beliefs is left entirely up to him, but Freemasonry 
recognizes the strong bond which unites all people under One 
Creator. Our members include men from a wide range of religious 
backgrounds, but each of them shares a commitment to this important 
principle. 

Relief: Because of our strong bond of Brotherly Love, Masons 
provide Relief to help those who are in need. This includes the 
notion of charity, and Masons provide much assistance to worthy 
charities, but it also means offering a helping hand, in other ways, 
to people that need assistance. 

Truth: As Masons, we are committed to being honest and truthful 
with other people. The Masonic Fraternity teaches a man to be 
faithful to his responsibilities to God, his Country, his fellow 
man, his family and himself. The Masonic principle of Truth also 
teaches a man to search for wisdom and understanding. For only in 
this way can he grow and become a better person. The pursuit of 
knowledge is at the very heart of our purpose.
