It is often thought that to become a Freemason you must be invited …
…We are here to tell you that is not the case. If you are interested in learning how to become a Freemason and join a Masonic Lodge, you will be interested to find that Freemasonry is built of men who, by their own free will and accord, pursued membership in The Craft. To become a member you must first find a Masonic lodge location near you, contact them, and ask for a petition.
By joining a masonic lodge and becoming a freemason, you will be joining the oldest and largest fraternity in the world, with over 2 million men from all races, religions, and countries that you will be able to call upon as brothers. You should be aware that there are requirements to becoming a Freemason, and should understand these prior to petitioning for membership.
Freemasonry is a voluntary, fraternal organization, composed of men of good will, good character and good reputation, whom in most jurisdictions around the world, believe in the Fatherhood of God and practice the spirit of universal brotherhood to man.
They are loyal to their country and devote their time to the principles of friendship and fellowship. Their focus is to be of service to all mankind.
For many men, Freemasonry fulfills a part of themselves that they intrinsically felt was missing. Whether it be the social, the philosophical, the spiritual, the historical or simply a sense of community with others; you will find within Freemasonry that part of you which you seek.
Free Masons help to build a better world through a unique and worthy process of building better men to live in it.
