Freemasonry is the oldest, largest, and most esteemed fraternal organization in the world. Since 1818, the Grand Lodge of Free & Accepted Masons of Indiana and our entire Hoosier Masonic family have been cornerstones of nearly every Indiana community, large and small. Today, Indiana has 50,000 Masons in almost 400 lodges throughout the state, and we represent men from all walks of life.
A Freemason is a man eager to be part of something bigger than himself, with a reverence for history, compassion in his heart, a desire to serve his fellow man, and a yearning to create a better future. Our fraternity welcomes adult men of every race, religion, income, education, national origin, and opinion, who are of good moral character and profess a belief in a Supreme Being. Through our degrees and ceremonies, the values of Freemasonry are passed from generation to generation, Mason to Mason, in a timeless and tireless effort to make good men better ones, all over the world.
In an age when divisiveness and solitude are dramatically altering society, our mission today remains more vital than ever. Through our universal brotherhood, Masons learn to be better husbands, better fathers, better brothers, and better citizens. By appreciating our differences, we learn to focus on what unites Mankind. For this reason, discussion of divisive topics like religion, politics, and business is not permitted in our lodges. In this way, we continue the centuries-old purpose of our fraternity – to unite men of every country, sect, and opinion, and foster true friendship among those who otherwise would have remained at a perpetual distance.
Every year, in virtually every city and town throughout Indiana and all around the globe, thousands of men join the ranks of Freemasonry. Men of honor and integrity. Of charity and obligation. Each with a vow to be the best they can be.
To be more than just a man. To be a Mason.
