Freemasonry is described as a morally
progressive science which is veiled in allegory & explained through symbols. It encourages good men to become
better men by promoting a life devoted to high ideals, community service and benevolence. Men of every race, religion, and political affiliation become Freemasons. Each has a personal belief in
a Supreme Being and a determination to conduct himself in a manner that will earn the respect and trust of others.
