Freemasonry: Our Way of Life
One of the ancient Landmarks of Freemasonry is that it will not solicit new members. A man seeking Masonic membership must do so of is own free will and accord. Freemasonry does not permit its members to invite others to join because it believes that a man who becomes a Mason of his own personal desire is much more likely to become a strong and beneficial member.
Freemasonry is not a religion, nor is it a substitute for religion. It provides no system of faith, offers no sacrament, and does not claim to lead to salvation. Every member is free to follow the Faith or Denomination which best agree with his personal religious conviction and is encouraged to do so.
Masonry expects its members to conduct themselves in accordance with a strict moral code, and it believes the requirements of that moral code are in harmony with the teachings of any religion or with the beliefs of any good man.
Today Freemasonry is a Fraternal society whose members are linked together by a common moral uprightness and whose ethical principles are acceptable to all good men. Its doors are open to all men who seek harmony with each other, who feel a desire for self-improvement and who wish to participate in the adventure of making this world a better place to live.
