What is Freemasonry?
Freemasonry is perhaps the oldest fraternity still active today, publicly organized in 1717 with the formation of the Grand Lodge of England and based upon traditions at least as old as the late 14th century. It is dedicated to the cause of helping good men become the best husbands, fathers, brothers, and citizens that they can be. It teaches and instills enduring virtues like truth, honor, integrity, charity, perseverance, service, equality, liberty, and justice. Men of good character from all races and creeds, who can express a belief in Deity and in the immortality of the soul, are welcomed through its doors. No one is asked or invited to become a Freemason.
