Freemasons are expected to adhere to three principles:

Brotherly Love
Every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and behave with kindness and understanding to his fellow creatures.

Freemasons are taught to practice charity, and to care, not only for their own members, but for the community as a whole, by both charitable giving, and by voluntary effort.

Freemasonry strives for truth and requires high moral standards of its members.

A Freemason is a man who has taken an obligation to make of himself the best he can, for himself, his family, and his community.
