Our goal of pursuing Kingdom Diversity is deeply theological. God inscribed the unity and diversity of the Godhead into his good creation. From ground we walk on, to the people who inhabit the earth, God’s multifarious beauty was made manifest. Subsequently, the fall in Genesis 3 distorted the divine reflection that was embedded in creation. A symptom of humanity’s fallen state is strife along the lines of difference, including race. Through Christ, and by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, God’s people are enabled to display God’s redemptive power by simultaneously embracing and transcending the differences that enrich the tapestry of the Kingdom. Southeastern seeks to equip our students to fulfill this glorious commission.
The following bench marks have been established by Southeastern because they are indicative of a campus that seeks to equip the people of God to cleanse the church and our culture from a history of inequity:
Although the pursuit of these goals is costly, it is far more costly for the Church to press forward without intentionally trying to reflect the Kingdom that we hope for.
