Prince Hall Credo

I believe in God, the Grand Architect of the Universe. The Alpha of the un-reckoned yesterdays, the Omega of the impenetrable tomorrows. The Beginning and the Ending. 

I believe in man, potentially God’s other self. Often faltering on his way upward, but irrepressible in the urge to scale the spiritual Annapurna’s.

I believe in Free Masonry; that corporate adventure in universal brotherhood, despising kinship with no child of the All Father.

I believe in Prince Hall Masonry; a door of benevolence, securely tiled against the unworthy, but open wide to men of good rapport, whether Aryan or Hottentots. 

I believe in Masonic Vows; the truths of true men, plighted to their better selves.

I AM A PROUD PRINCE HALL SCOTTISH RITE MASON
