The International Association of Free Seventh-day Adventists is a network of self-supporting Seventh-day Adventist churches and ministries worldwide. Membership is open to self-supporting or independent churches, ministries, or individuals that uphold the historic beliefs and practices of the Seventh-day Adventists faith. The membership application process includes filling out and returning an application form. Once the application is approved, a membership certificate is sent to the church, ministry, or individual.
Membership in the International Association allows self-supporting or historic Adventist churches to use the Free Seventh-day Adventist name in their church's name, literature, handouts, etc., without fear of the trademarks of the Seventh-day Adventist name. Additional benefits include being a part of a large worldwide body with an emphasis on outreach, raising up new churches, promoting present truth via the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy, and Medical Missionary Evangelism.

WHO ARE FREE SDAs?
Free Seventh-day Adventists are ardent believers and strong proponents of the historic Seventh- day Adventist faith. We firmly uphold the fundamental teachings of the pioneers of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Since our formative years, in the early 1900s, Free Seventh- day Adventists have provided a viable option or choice of Adventism for those who have a great love and respect for the original beliefs, worship style, and practices of the founders of the Seventh-day Adventist faith. Our mission is to advance the Three Angels’ Messages of Revelation, chapter 14; to preserve and uphold the doctrines, principles, and teachings of the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy; to once again revive and promote the initial burden or mission of the pioneers of the Seventh-day Adventist faith, as echoed in our church’s original motto, “the Advent message to all the world in this generation.” As a result, for over a century we have earnestly tried to preserve and promote the teachings of the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy—the sources of the old landmarks or foundational pillars of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. This we still do today, "free" from the new theology, "free" from celebration worship, and “free” from the control of men. Free Seventh-day Adventists take pride in the words of Christ:
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
