The Masonic Commitment to Character:

Many years ago, the famous Freemason Dr. Albert Schweitzer wrote these magnificent words: "It is not enough merely to exist... Every man has to seek in his own way to make his own self more noble and to realize his own true worth." Those words capture the meaning of Freemasonry. As the worlds oldest and largest fraternity, their goal is to build a mans most v...aluable possession his character.

Freemasons believe that the strength of the family, the church, the community and our country rests with men of strong conviction, firm ethical and moral values and a devotion to the democratic system of government. As Masons, they intensify their concentration on these enduring values.

In a day when it seems that few people really care about rising to the highest and best in life, it is good to know that there is a group where a man can really improve himself. In lodge meetings, there is no talk of politics, no discussion of religious issues, even though every Mason must affirm a belief according to his own understanding in deity and devotion to his country.

Masons are concerned with developing their minds and enlarging their scope of knowledge. In a word, Masons are dedicated to becoming better men. Men of every walk of life belong to Masonic Lodges. They are proud of their centuries of tradition, their belief in brotherhood, country and the many Masonic acts of charity and compassion.
