What are the requirements to become a Mason?

Anyone meeting the following primary requirements may petition a lodge for membership:
You are an adult male (18 or older) of good character and well recommended by a Mason.
You believe in a Supreme Being – no atheist or agnostic can become a Mason – but we are not concerned with theological distinctions or your particular religious beliefs.
You are interested in becoming a Mason because you hold a favorable opinion of our institution; and, your decision to apply is based on your own “free will and accord” – no one compelled you to join.
