Mission of Freemasonry

What is the Mission of Freemasonry?

To promote a way of life that binds like-minded men in a worldwide brotherhood that transcends all religious, ethnic, cultural, social and educational differences; by teaching the great principles of brotherly love, relief and truth; and, by the outward expression of these through its fellowship, to find ways in which to serve God, family, country, neighbors and self.

The Grand Lodge has a very strict ant-hazing policy.

It is prohibited for all Masons within the Jurisdiction of the Most Worshipful King Solomon Grand Lodge to participate or not report any incidents of hazing according to the Alabama Anti-hazing law

§ 16-1-23.  Code of  Alabama, Hazing prohibited; penalty

How do we measure ourselves?

The Twenty-four Inch Gauge

In the First Degree of Masonry a mason is taught to divide his time; a time for the service of his God and his Brothers, a time for his occupation and family and a time for Fellowship.  We are also taught that Masonry comes after a man’s obligation to his family and occupation.   We understand today’s pressures of providing for one’s family and their emotional needs.   Therefore, we plan to meet only twice a month on a regular basis; one Stated Meeting to conduct the necessary business and Degrees and a second Learning or Fellowship night.  Our Fellowship nights may consist a local restaurant with discussions of like interests.  Officers and degree teams may meet more often, however they are free to schedule for their own needs.
