Free and Accepted Masons

Qualifications & Petition

Qualifications for Membership

Membership in a Masonic Lodge is open to all men 21 years of age or older — regardless of race, color, or religion. Our membership requirements are very clear:

  • You must be of good character and reputation. You’ll have to provide evidence of living a positive life through references from at least one Mason and three other people.
  • You must believe in a Supreme Being and the immortality of the soul. This belief is not prescribed — rather, we encourage you to be steadfast in the faith of your choice.

Taking the next step

If you are interested in becoming a Freemason and know a Mason ask him about the Fraternity.  He will be happy to help.  Or you can always ask right here on the Contact page.

At some point prior to joining, you will be asked to complete a Petition.  A sample is found below:
