gold compass and ruler mdMasonry teaches a system of morality, ethics and virtues based upon the tools and language of ancient stonemasons.
 
gold compass and ruler mdMasonry is not a religion and does not profess any religious dogma. While many of us believe in a Supreme Being or a Creative Principle, we respect that individual beliefs are personal and lack of belief does not preclude membership.
 
gold compass and ruler mdMasonry is not a science but it places value on learning, particularly in the liberal arts.
 
gold compass and ruler mdMasonry encourages masons to think, but it does not tell individual masons what to think.
 
gold compass and ruler mdMasonry teaches tolerance and respect. Masons must treat each other as equals and help one another.
 
gold compass and ruler mdMasons meet in lodges governed by a Master who is assisted by Wardens. Individuals who are morally qualified are admitted using well-established rituals common to all masonic orders.
 
gold compass and ruler mdMasons have ways of recognising each other: words, signs and handshakes.
 
gold compass and ruler mdMasonry provides a broader understanding of the world and belief in the higher nature of humanity.
