Freemasonry is a historical and a continuing movement that transcends national, language, ethnic, religious and political boundaries. Freemasonry is a fraternity that has adapted to the circumstances and conditions of each nation and region and continues to adapt as needed. Thus, regular Freemasonry has many forms. However, all members, everywhere in the world, share the powerful belief that good men of faith, freely acting together as brothers, with tolerance and respect, and in accordance with sound ethics and virtues, can create and sustain positive social change and self-improvement.
To accomplish these honorable goals, Freemasonry everywhere limits its membership to men who voluntarily and without coercion come to the fraternity sincerely seeking self-improvement and new opportunities to contribute to society. Members are provided guidance and symbolic tools to help them discipline their passions, moderate their behaviors, advance their understanding and expand their minds. Members also receive instruction on moral, ethical and scientific principles which encourages the development of good habits and good citizenship.
Through fellowship, members are provided examples of good behavior and of knowledgeable and logical thinkers. When members are faced with personal challenges, the brothers of the fraternity are there to advise, assist and even offer relief if it is within their power. The fraternity strives to assist public schools, communities and charitable organizations without fanfare and without thought of personal or organizational gain.
Freemasonry adapts and therefore has remained relevant throughout the ages and in all lands, and its core message is as powerful today as it was in the past.
