How does one become a mason?

There is one little known aspect of petitioning for membership of which you should be aware.  Masons in Kentucky do not solicit for membership;
we wait for the man to ask for a petition. You will not be asked to become a member.  Joining a Masonic Lodge is fairly simple, but there are some requirements that must be met.

  1. Belief in God Believe in the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of man
  2. Male and at least 18 years old
  3. Be a resident of Kentucky
  4. Be recommended by 2 members of the Lodge
  5. Receive a unanimous ballot for membership

If these requirements are met, one thing further is required to join the Masonic organization. The man wishing to become a Mason must seek out his local Masonic Lodge, through its members, and request to join. Masonry does not ask men to join Masonry, but wants its members to be serious about their commitments and exercise their free will in deciding to join the Masons.
Upon making this request, the prospective member will be asked to formally petition the Lodge affirming his qualifications for membership.
