"And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity." 1 COR 13:13 KJV


Turn on your TV today or look at social media and you're instantly bombarded with a world full of division, mistrust, hopelessness, and hate. It seems that society is in a downward spiral that just keeps getting worse. And there doesn't seem to be any escape from it.

Imagine if there was a place that you could go where everyone was on the same playing field and it didn't matter what you did for a living, where you went to church, what race you were, or what religion you practiced. What if there was a place that you could go where you could participate in fellowship that was rooted in being a good man and having a desire to help those around you who are less fortunate? What if this place allowed you to share a special bond with other men from all around the world who also believe in noble deeds, higher thoughts, and generosity towards all mankind?

Welcome to the world of Freemasonry.

Who We Are...

We are a fraternity of men who strive to make each other better through education and community. As our motto states, we "take good men and make them better"! We take great pride in our communities, our occupations, and our families by being moral and upright in everything that we do and with everyone we meet. We reach out to those less fortunate by serving in the neighborhoods in which we live, raising funds for charities, and donating time and effort where we can make a difference.

Who We Are Not...

We are not a religion nor are we a substitute for one. Every Mason is strongly urged to participate regularly in the faith of his choice, but Masonry itself will not lead to salvation. We are not a secret society. Our buildings are clearly marked, our meeting times are published, and a majority of the lectures and ceremonies are available in print to the public. We are not a cult. Masonry repeatedly states that a man must have his own ideology before joining. We simply teach that morality is a universal concept and regardless of religious creed every man can agree to treating everyone with dignity and respect, regardless of his beliefs. And while we are tolerant of all peaceful religions, we don't permit Atheists to join. We feel that there is just too much beauty and complexity in the world for everything to be an accident.
