International Saints & Abolitionists

Fighting so that all may be free!

Founded in 2018, International Saints & Abolitionists continue to educate the populous and join with other organizations to end human trafficking. With Christ leading, ISA strives to equip the saints to be abolitionists.

ISA has made an amazing impact through events, online training, documentaries, prostitution research, and campaigns that have produced real change, both in the United States and across the Globe. 


Who We Are

We are a team of passionate abolitionists. 

Coming together from various backgrounds and experiences, our team relies on the generosity of advocates, volunteers, and those who want to make a difference in the fight against trafficking.

This is the backbone of International Saints & Abolitionists.

Statement of Beliefs

Doctrine of God

We believe in one God eternally existing as one essence and three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, each of whom is fully God, yet there is one God.

Doctrine of Creation and Providence

We believe that God created the world from nothing and governs all things at all times in all places.

Doctrine of Humanity

We believe that all humanity is created in the image of God and possesses intrinsic dignity and worth.

Doctrine of Sin

We believe that sin has fractured all things, leaving the world in desperate need of salvation, available only in Jesus Christ. 

Doctrine of Salvation

We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.

Doctrine of Prayer

We believe that all Christ followers are to pray without ceasing and fully relying on our Sovereign God to hear, guide, answer, and direct us.

Doctrine of the Church

We believe that the Church is the body of Christ sent into the world to shine forth the glory of God.

Doctrine of Revelation

God has made Himself known to the world in Jesus Christ, the inerrant and infallible Scriptures, and creation.

Doctrine of Resurrection and Consummation of the Kingdom of God

We believe that Jesus Christ is returning to the world in the future to judge the living and the dead.
