Vision / Mission

Masonry is the world’s oldest and largest fraternity of gentlemen who base themselves on the code of ethics of the ancient stonemasons.

Masonry teaches fundamental truths that apply to all men in all ages. However, without a focused plan, little is accomplished. The leadership of the Grand Lodge of Nebraska has carefully crafted this vision and mission statement to act as guideposts to our daily actions as a Grand Lodge. It is important that the Grand Lodge set the standard for individual Masons and confirm to the public that we are alive and active.


Freemasonry in Nebraska shall be a preeminent organization for men of quality, regardless of race, religion or creed, consistently delivering, by symbols, allegory and example, a moral code founded on the highest standards of ethics, honesty and strength of character, a fraternal organization committed to charity, true fellowship and brotherly love under the Fatherhood of God; and a relevant organization dedicated to delighting, involving and educating members and their families in the community, where the lodge is a vibrant, respected and contributing part of community life.

The Organization must be led by men committed to excellence, maintain quality programs and quality use of time and should forge alliances within the community designed both to help the community and develop the character of masons.

A man who becomes a Nebraska Mason can expect to find in his fraternity the opportunity to learn and to lead; to be inspired and entertained; to be challenged and respected; to be involved with his family, his Brothers and his community; and be proud to be a member of an organization committed to making a difference.
