About SBC

Serving Christ With A Biblical World View In A Christian Atmosphere

SBC is the College for you. Many people have the misconception that a Bible college is only for those in full-time Christian vocations, such as pastors.  The truth is that a Bible college is similar in many ways to any other college. 

Southeastern offers an excellent two-year curriculum for those who would like to begin their college career in a Christian atmosphere.  These students can then transfer their credits to a senior college or university to continue their studies in a more specialized field.

Yes, in the subjects offered, the campus experience and academic excellence, a Bible college is similar to any other college; however, the ways in which we are different set us apart from other colleges.  The smaller student population, personal attention, a Christian atmosphere inside and outside the classroom, and the pleasure of being someone special on campus make the Southeastern experience a time to cherish for the rest of your life.
