The Essential Qualification for Membership 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 fulfil this essential qualification and who are of good repute.
Freemasonry is not a religion, nor is it a substitute for religion. Its essential qualification opens it to men of many religions and it expects them to continue to follow their own faith. It does not allow religion or politics to be discussed at its meeting.
For many years Freemasons have followed three great principles. Freemasons believe that these principles represent a way of achieving higher standards in life.
Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest, non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. It is based on Three Great Principles.
All Freemasons are taught to show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and to behave with kindness and understanding to their fellow creatures.
Freemasons are taught to practice charity and to care not only for themselves, but also for the wider community.
Freemasons strive for truth and aim to achieve high moral standards in their lives.
Freemasonry is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught its principles by a series of ritual dramas – a progression of allegorical two-part plays, which are learnt by heart and performed in the lodge – which follow ancient forms, and use stonemasons’ customs and tools as allegorical guides.
Freemasonry means different things to each of us, who join. For some it is about making new friends and acquaintances. For others, it is about being able to help deserving causes both Masonic and non-Masonic. For most, it is an enjoyable hobby.
Membership is open to all men of any race or religion, who are at least 21 years old, law abiding, of good character and believe in a Supreme Being.
