"The mission of Freemasonry in North Carolina is to raise the moral, social, intellectual, and spiritual conscience of society by teaching the ancient and enduring philosophical tenets of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth, which are expressed outwardly through service to God, family, country, and self under the Fatherhood of God within the Brotherhood of Man."
- The Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of North Carolina
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell
together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the
head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's
beard: that went down to the skirts of his
garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as
the dew that descended upon the
mountains of Zion: for there the
Lord commanded the blessing,
even life for ever more.
