Hejaz Temple has over 4000 Shriners from all over the Upstate of South Carolina. Each Noble of the Mystic Shrine is a man with a mission to support our numerous Shriners Charities.
The Shriner's Creed
Shriners believe in God and that He created man to serve His purposes, among which is service to others in His name.
We believe that care for the less fortunate, especially children who suffer from burns and crippling diseases, is our institutional calling.
We are patriots, each willing to serve his country with fidelity and courage. We cherish independence under law and freedom with responsibility. We honor family. We respect our parents, wives and children. We should instill in our children the tenets of this creed, and the heritage from which it emanates.
As individuals we pledge ourselves to integrity, virtue and nobility of character. Our intentions will be honorable, our relations will be trustworthy and our spirits forgiving of each other.
As brothers we offer each other fraternal affection and respect. Together we will support each other in adherence to this creed, so that we and our communities will be the better because of our fraternity and its principles.
As Shriners we look beyond ourselves to serve the needs of others, especially children who cannot help themselves. We believe Shriners Hospitals to be the world's greatest philanthropy, and we covenant with each other to support its "temples of mercy" with spirit, time, talent and means.

If you like what you see on these previous pages and would cherish the opportunity to become a Shriner with Hejaz Temple, you must first be a Master Mason in good standing. To be a Mason you must first ask one (2B1 ASK1). To help you find a lodge near you, visit the website of The Grand Lodge of Ancient Free Masons of South Carolina.
