How do I become a freemason? PDF Print

Freemasonry is one of the oldest fraternal organizations in the world.  Each candidate must come to masonry of their own free will and accord.  As such, you will never be asked to become a freemason.  You must ask.

In order to be a freemason, you must:

  • Be a man, over the age of 18.
  • Believe in a Supreme Being.
  • Live an ethical and moral life.
  • Have a strong interest in the Fraternity and be willing to support its charities and activities.

We believe that men are first made Masons in their hearts, then they ask to join our Fraternity. Freemasonry will take these men — good men in their communities — and help them become better men. Each man brings something different into the Fraternity, as different as the types of men that become Masons. But each shares a common core of beliefs and of dreams; each believes that, in a small way, by their actions they help make their world, their communities, and themselves better.
