How to Become a Mason?

Freemasonry has its lodges throughout the free world. You’ll find Masons meeting in almost every town and village and – except where repressive governments make their existence difficult – they’re readily found. None of these lodges was ever organized as a result of any type of ‘missionary’ work: they came into existence because a group of Masons wanted to share the friendship and fraternity with others in the area.

What is SO often misunderstood is a simple fact: there are few but important requirements to become a Freemason!

While they are stated in slightly different words in various jurisdictions (and a few jurisdictions may have one or two requirements beyond these), they basically are as follows:

     1.   Being a man, freeborn, of good repute and well-recommended;

     2.   A belief in a Supreme Being;

     3.   Ability to support one’s self and family;

     4.   Of lawful age; and

     5.   Come to Freemasonry of their “own free will and accord”.

Freemasonry is an initiatic experience. You can’t become a Mason by reading a book or by hanging out on the internet.
