The Grand Lodge Of Arizona

2017-2018 Grand Lodge
Mission Statement, Values, Goals & Objectives

Every well-run lodge has or should have a written Mission and Vision Statement as well as a written set of Goals and Objectives for the current Masonic year to serve as a guide of what is expected to be accomplished and in what direction the lodge wants to move. 

To that effect, the Grand Line Officers have been working to establish a Mission and Vision Statement and identifying Goals and Objectives for the current Masonic year as a guide for their efforts.  The following are the result of their efforts:

Mission Statement

Freemasonry is a voluntary organization promoting a way of life that binds men together in a worldwide brotherhood.  It transcends all religious, ethnic, cultural, social and educational differences in order to promote positive changes in Arizona Freemasonry and the world.  We strive to make good men better men.

Vision Statement

To be a relevant and well-respected organization that makes a difference, thereby improving the world for future Masonic generations.

Values

Our values are guided by the enduring and relevant tenets of our fraternity:
  • Brotherly Love.  We value respect, freedom, kindness, tolerance, and our differences – religious, ethnic, cultural, social and educational while striving for harmony in our personal lives, in our lodges, and in our communities.
  • Relief.  We take responsibility for the well-being of our brothers, our families, and our communities.  We provide relief through philanthropy, community involvement, and education.
  • Truth.  We stay true to our personal code of conduct and ethics – honor, integrity, personal responsibility, and the continual pursuit of self-improvement (progress).
