Freemasonry is intended to offer those who are members the opportunity to make themselves better individuals and demonstrate to others that they are kind, considerate and charitable to those less fortunate than themselves, irrespective of whether they are Freemasons or not. We are not a religion. Our beliefs are compatible with all religions which believe in a Supreme Being.
Our values are based upon integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness
