FREEMASONRY'S MISSION STATEMENT
The Mission of Freemasonry is 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 principle of Brotherly Love,
relief and truth; and, by the outward expression of these through its fellowship,
its compassion and its concern, to find ways in which to serve God, family,
country, neighbor and self.
SUN CITY LODGE'S VISION STATEMENT
Sun City is a Lodge of Master Masons which openly works to advance the tenets of
our Craft. We have made it a priority to promote and cultivate in our membership
a greater level of interest, involvement, and participation in the concordant and
appendant Rites of Freemasonry. Those who have gathered to form Sun City Lodge
have made a dedicated effort to travel within the fraternity, and further their
Masonic education and experience. Sun City Lodge is an environment, a vehicle,
a habitat if you will, designed for the purpose of generating excellent Masons.
Masons who from the very beginning of their entrance into the Lodge, are
impressed upon to take their chosen and accepted journey into the society and
culture of Freemasonry, very seriously.
SUN CITY LODGE'S MISSION STATEMENT
The purpose of Sun City Lodge is to provide our candidates and initiates with an
introduction to the beauty and mysteries of Freemasonry. This Masonic responsibility
is met in a manner consistent with inculcating the greatest understanding, respect
for, and appreciation of, their acceptance into a Lodge of Master Masons. Sun City
Lodge seeks to cultivate, nurture, and produce motivated Master Masons who are
exposed to a Masonic education that emphasizes participation in Lodge work, Officer
Development and excellence in the performance of Masonic ritual.
WHAT WE EXPECT FROM MEMBERS
Sun City Lodge is committed to actually living the principles of classical
Freemasonry. To achieve this we commit to investigating the principles themselves,
their origins, how history has affected the transmission of these principles, and
what we must do each day to live them here, and now. We value knowledge, intention,
action silence and circumspection. We study the esoteric foundations of the craft.
We learn and perform exemplary ritual, and investigate exactly what the ritual was
designed to teach. We do not accept dogma but rather accept knowledge arrived at
through experience. We define brotherhood as a personal active commitment to each
other and expect our members live this each day. We value and embrace open search
for truth. We reject tyranny, political correctness, or social injustice. We
practice charity directly and personally. We do not bend to the vicissitudes of life.
We do not shirk from duty or the imperatives of honor. Sun City Lodge accepts men
who wish to walk with us in the active pursuit of this code.
