Anyone meeting the following primary requirements may petition a California lodge for membership:
- You are an adult male (18 or older) of good character and recommended by a California Mason.
- You believe in a Supreme Being – no atheist or agnostic can become a Mason. We are also not concerned with theological distinctions or your particular religion or 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” – and no one has compelled you to join.
