Freemasonry: A Path to a Better LifeAn Opportunity to Become a Better Man
What Is Freemasonry?
Masonry is the world’s oldest fraternity of gentlemen founded on the code of ethics of the stonemasons who built many of the great cathedrals and buildings of the Medieval period.
Who are the Freemasons?
Members of Masonic Lodges can be found in every free country on earth. We represent a variety of cultures, religious beliefs and professions. And yet, we meet in peace, harmony and friendship. This is possible because of the respect we hold for the opinions of our fellow men.
What is a Lodge?
A Masonic lodge is more than a building; it is a living, breathing organization made up of and sustained by the members themselves. It is a tight-knit group of men who make solemn vows to one another and become comrades in Masonry and life. A unique aspect of lodge life is the coming together of generations and differing backgrounds.
What Does Freemasonry Support?
The Masonic fraternity believes its members have an obligation to give back to their communities for the benefit of others.
Throughout time, good men have sought a method and philosophy to improve themselves as men, fathers, husbands and citizens of their country and communities. Freemasonry can provide those tools!
What do they believe in?
The values of Freemasonry are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Freemasons are taught to practice charity and to care not only for their own, but also for the community as a whole through charitable giving and volunteer efforts. We gather together to help each other become better men and to forge a better world.
How do I become a Mason?
Through a series of ceremonies, the values of Freemasonry are passed from Mason to Mason, in a timeless and tireless effort to make good men better. These ceremonies provide a framework that affects every aspect of modern life and are based on the values of brotherly love, relief and truth.
Mission StatementNebraska Freemasonry will establish itself as the premier fraternal organization promoting universally acknowledged values of friendship, morality, and brotherly love.
The Principles of our fraternity
Brotherly Love - We value respect, freedom, kindness, tolerance, and our differences - religious, ethnic, cultural, social, generational, and educational - and strive for harmony in our individual lives, in our lodges, and in the global community.
Relief - We take responsibility for the well-being of our brothers, our families, and the community as a whole. We provide relief through philanthropy, community involvement, and delivery of excellent care.
Truth - We stay true to our personal code of conduct and ethics - honor, integrity, personal responsibility, and the continuous pursuit of knowledge.
The Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Nebraska have, since 1857, provided a way for men to improve themselves and their community.
A Freemason is committed to bettering himself, his community, and the world. He is on a journey of self- discovery believing in something greater than himself, a journey in which he will be supported by other good men. Become the best version of you. Answer the call. Begin the journey.
