Masonic Compact

Because I am a Freemason

 I believe that freedom of religion is an inalienable human right and tolerance an indispensable trait of human character.  Therefore, I will stand in my lodge with Brothers of all faiths, and respect their belief, as they respect mine, and I will demonstrate the spirit of Brotherhood in all aspects of my life.

 I know that education and the rational use of the mind are the keys to facing the problems of humanity.  Therefore, I will bring my questions and ideas to my lodge, and strive to advance the growth of my mind alongside my Brothers.

 I know that the rich tradition of Freemasonry and its framework of ritual are important platforms for growth and learning.  Therefore, I vow to stand upon these platforms to improve myself as a human being, and I vow to help in the mission of the Craft to provide tools, atmosphere, challenges and motivation to help each Brother do the same.

 I know that charity is the distinguishing human virtue, and that personal community service is the best demonstration of ones commitment to humanity.  I acknowledge that words without deeds are meaningless, and I vow to work with my Lodge to provide service to the community, and to promote charity, friendship, morality, harmony, integrity, fidelity and love.

 I know that my obligation to community extends beyond my local sphere and is partially fulfilled in my patriotism- love of my country, obedience to its laws and celebration of the freedoms and opportunities it symbolizes.

 I know that leadership is best demonstrated by commitment to serving others.  I will therefore participate in, and help work at improving individual leadership skills, while serving the Brothers of my lodge to the best of my ability.

 I know that friendship, fidelity and family are the foundations of a well-lived life.  I therefore vow to be a faithful friend to my Brothers, while expecting my lodge to respect my personal obligations, and to treat family as though my family were their own.

 I know that the last great lesson of Freemasonry the value of personal integrity and the sanctity of one's word  is a lesson for all people in all times.  I therefore vow to be a man of my word.

 I know that Freemasonry power is best exercised when its Light is shared with the world at large.  I therefore vow to bring the best of myself to my lodge, in order that my growth might be fostered and nurtured, and to present myself to the world as a working Freemason, on the path to building a more perfect temple.

Because I am a Freemason, these values and aspirations are the guideposts for my progress through life
