Freemasonry is a fraternity of brothers who share one common goal: to help each other become better men. We strengthen and improve our character by learning and practicing basic virtues of fraternal love, charity, and truth. Our principals extend far beyond our interactions with each other, and we strive to apply them to our daily lives. All who join Freemasonry must declare their belief in the existence of a Supreme Being and practice their own personal faith. The fraternity is neither a religion or place of worship. Rather, it is a place where men of monotheistic creeds can meet and focus on the great truths of peaceful human interaction which are common to all religions.
