“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” ~ Matthew 7:7
Above is a quote from the New Testament. Ask, seek, knock.
Becoming a Freemason is not as difficult as one might be lead to believe. The first thing you need to do is contemplate on your future. What do you want out of life? Who do you want to be? Who are you right now? Deep introspection is a good way to start your journey. Ultimately the steps you take today shape your tomorrow.
Ask — To be one ask one. This is a famous phrase in Freemason circles. Is it really that simple though? Yes. The first step you need to take is to simply ask. You will find that Freemasons are quite friendly people. Send us a request for information using the contact form here on the website. Leave your contact information. You may not get a response right away but we will contact you. We often have fellowship in public venues where we gather to have conversation, to keep in touch with events effecting each other, and to work toward building a bond that makes men brothers. Feel free to join us.
Seek — Once you have asked, the journey is in your hands. Freemasonry is about finding light in the world. It is about building good men into better men. Look into your soul. Where do you feel you are lacking? What rough aspects of your self do you need to work on? What are your faults? What are your weaknesses? We will provide the guide posts for your journey but the responsibility is yours.
Knock — When you have taken the time for deep introspection and have taken an audit of yourself, then you knock. Freemasonry is an initiative fraternal order. Once you have taken the time to make sure this path is right for you than fill out a petition. This is not a fast process. It may take time for review, we will want to setup a meeting with you and your significant other, and we will generally take the time to get to know you.
After this the lodge will vote on whether you will be admitted into the lodge, or not. We are a brotherhood of equals. Every voice counts and should you get even one negative vote you will be politely turned down. You can always try again in a few years. Being voted down does not mean you are thought to be a bad person but simply that you may not be ready. If you are voted in we will schedule your initiation. Don’t worry, there is nothing to fear. As said above we are a brotherhood of equals. You are in safe and, most importantly, respectful hands.
