The purpose of Freemasonry is to make "better men out of good men." it is the mission of each brother to strengthen his character, improve his moral and spiritual outlook and increase his knowledge of Masons in Masonry. Freemasonry seeks to impress upon the minds of its members the principles of personal responsibility and righteousness, to give each member feeling of charity and morality, and endeavor to put the lessons into practice in his daily life.
