There are approximately 6 million Freemasons worldwide, 2.5 million members in the United States, and 55,000 members in Tennessee. Freemasonry has a rich tradition. Many founding fathers of our country were Freemasons, and 14 U.S. Presidents have worn the Masonic apron. Masonic teachings help men become better husbands, fathers, and friends.
To become a Mason, you must meet the following basic criteria:
1) Be a man 18 years of age 2) Believe in a Supreme Being 3) Be of reputable character
Freemasonry does not recruit its members. To be a Mason, you must ask another Mason how to join. If you are interested in more information, contact us.
Masonic labor is purely a labor of love. He who seeks to draw Masonic wages in gold and silver will be disappointed. The wages of a Mason are earned and paid in their dealings with one another; sympathy that begets sympathy, kindness begets kindness, helpfulness begets helpfulness, and these are the wages of a Mason. - Benjamin Franklin
