The Freemasons are composed of people of all walks of life; of different nationalities, religions, occupations and ages. Freemasons believe in equality, truth, respect and freedom.
Freemasonry can have a variety of meanings for each member. For some, it’s about belonging to one of the world’s historically oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organizations. For others it's about camaraderie, making new friends and a brotherhood that stands the test of time. For most, Freemasonry is a way of life and a way of striving towards becoming a better person.
Every man comes of his own free will and accord. One may join to improve themselves and in turn improve society, another to focus on charity, and another for history and tradition. However, all who join will discover a bond of brotherhood, mutual support; and extension of philosophical beliefs.
The qualification for admission is a belief in a Supreme Being. Freemasonry is not a substitute for a person's faith but supplements their faith, spirituality and life following the principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth. Freemasons believe in the building up of one’s self, society and the world.
The Brothers of Eastgate Lodge consist of all walks of life, occupations, nationalities, religions, and age. The brothers are friends inside the lodge and out, meet socially for dinners and other events sharing enlightening view of their lives.
Freemasonry instills in its membership a moral and ethical approach to life: it seeks to reinforce thoughtfulness for others, kindness in the community, courtesy in society, and fairness in all things. Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount however, more importantly, Freemasonry also teaches and practices concern for people, care for those less fortunate and help for those in need. In essence, it is a beautiful system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols.
One of Freemasonry's customs is not to solicit members. However, anyone should feel free to approach any Freemason to seek further information. Membership is open to men of all faiths, 21 years of age or older.
