This is the Statement of Faith of Southeast:
We believe in one God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (John 14:9-20; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14, 1 John 5:1-12)
We believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible. (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 5:16, 45; 6:1, 4, 8, 9; Acts 17:24-28; Hebrews 11:3; James 1:17)
We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the eternal Word, the one and only Savior. (John 1:1, 14, 29; 3:16; Philippians 2:6-11; Colossians 1:15-19; 1 John 4:9)
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, both fully human and fully divine; Who lived a sinless life; Who suffered and was crucified as an atonement for sin; Who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day; Who ascended into Heaven; and Who will return in victory to rule forever. (Luke 1:26-35; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 4:15; Romans 5:15-17; Luke 22:47-24:53; John 20:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8; Acts 1:1-9; Colossians 3:1; Revelation 1:7-8; 11:15) 11
We believe in the Holy Spirit
Who convicts of sin; Who indwells every Christian; Who helps us in our weakness and intercedes for us in prayer; and Who empowers us to a fruitful Christian life. (John 16:8; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19; 2 Timothy 1:14; Romans 8:26; Galatians 5:22-23)
We believe in the Bible—God’s Holy Word, Scripture.
We believe God inspired the original writings of the Scripture and those original writings were consequently without error. (Mark 12:36; John 14:26; 16:12-15; Acts 1:16; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
We believe that the Bible is the final authority for all matters of faith, truth, morality, and Christian living. (Isaiah 40:8; Psalm 119:11, 105; Matthew 5:18; 24:35; Romans 15:4)
We believe the Bible teaches that God is the Creator and Sustainer of human life; that God creates each person in His image; and that life is therefore sacred, from conception to natural death. We believe that God creates each person as male or female; that these two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the “image of God” in humankind; and that each person’s biological gender is an intrinsic, immutable aspect of his or her nature and identity. (Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 2:7, 21-22; Psalm 139:13-18)
We believe the Bible teaches that God established marriage in the beginning as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman; that he has reserved sexual intimacy as an expression of love and commitment between married couples; and that any intimate expression of sexuality outside of Biblical marriage is sin. (Genesis 2:23-25; Exodus 20:14, 17, 22:19; Leviticus 18:1-20, 22-23; 20:11-21; Matthew 19:4-6, 9; Romans 1:18-31; I Corinthians 6:9-10, 15-20; I Timothy 1:8-11; Jude 7)
We believe in the Gospel – the Good News of Salvation
That man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ. (Isaiah 53:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23)
That salvation—the forgiveness of sins—is only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7)
That one receives salvation by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, and confessing Christ, and that the Bible commands every believer in Christ to be baptized by immersion. (Romans 5:1-2; 10:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 2:38, 3:19; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12; 1 Peter 3:21)
That those who have received salvation through faith in Jesus Christ are sent into the world to proclaim the gospel and to love and serve the world just as Jesus Himself did. (2 Corinthians 5:11-21; Ephesians 2:10; Matthew 28:18-20; John 20:21)
We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the Day of Pentecost, consisting of all Christians everywhere, and organized into local assemblies, called churches (Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47).
We believe the Bible teaches that every Christian should be an active member of a local church. (Hebrews 10:24-25)
We believe that the Elders of the church are the overseers of its affairs and the shepherds of its members; that they are the final interpretive authority of the Bible’s meaning and application for the church; and that they are responsible for the oversight, instruction, edification, discipline, and restoration of church members. (1 Peter 5:1-4; Titus 1:9, 2:1-15; Hebrews 13:17; Matthew 18:15-17; Galatians 6:1; 1 Corinthians 5:11-13)
We believe that the Bible instructs church members to:
Meet together regularly for fellowship, worship, teaching, and the Lord’s Supper. (Acts 2:42; Hebrews 10:25; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
Use our natural abilities and spiritual gifts to serve one another (Romans 12, 1 Peter 4:10, Galatians 5:13, 1 Corinthians 12:7)
Love one another, bear with one another, accept one another, and forgive one another (John 13:34-35; John 15:17, 1 John 4:7, 11; Romans 13:8; Ephesians 4:2, 32; Colossians 3:14, Romans 15:7)
Seek unity, agreement, and peace with one another (Romans 12:16, 18; 1 Thessalonians 5:13; Philippians 2:2; 2 Corinthians 13:11)
Encourage and build up one another (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
Bear one another’s burdens and pray for one another (Galatians 6:2; James 5:16)
Spur one another to love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24)
Submit to the authority of the elders of the church (Hebrews 13:17)
Support the church financially (2 Corinthians 8:7, Malachi 3:10, 1 Timothy 5:17-18)
Pursue personal holiness and obedience to God’s Word (2 Corinthians 7:1, 1 Thessalonians 4:7, 1 Peter 1:15)
Strive together to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20)

Information We Receive About You
We receive different types of information about you.
Your information is the information that's required when you sign up for the site, as well as the information you choose to share. When you sign up for this site, you are required to provide information such as your name and email address. Your information also includes the information you choose to share on this site, such as when you share a story, upload a photo, or comment on a friend's story. It also includes the information you choose to share when you take an action, such as when you add a friend, favorite an organization, like a page or a website, add a place to your story, or indicate personal interest. Your name, profile pictures, cover photos, gender, networks, username and User ID are treated just like information you choose to make public.
Information others share about you
We receive information about you from the community, such as when a resource is posted, tag you in a resource or event, or at a location, or add you to a group. When people use this site, they may store and share information about you and others, such as when they upload and manage their invites and contacts.
Other information we receive about you
We receive data about you whenever you interact with this site, such as when you look at another person's profile, send or receive a message, search for someone or a page, click on, view or otherwise interact with things, use a Southeast mobile app, or make other purchases through this site. When you post things like photos or videos on this site, we may receive additional related data (or metadata), such as the time, date, and place you took the photo or video. We receive data from the computer, mobile phone or other device you use to access this site, including when multiple users log in from the same device. This may include your IP address and other information about things like your internet service, location, the type (including identifiers) of browser you use, or the pages you visit. For example, we may get your GPS or other location information so we can tell you if any of your friends are nearby. We receive data whenever you use an application, or website that uses MedicalMissions.com / Southeast Platform, sometimes through cookies. This may include the date and time you visit the site; the web address, or URL, you're on; technical information about the IP address, browser and the operating system you use; and, if you are logged in to this site, your User ID. Sometimes we get data from our affiliates or our advertising partners, customers and other third parties that helps us (or them) deliver ads, understand online activity, and generally make this site better. For example, an advertiser may tell us information about you (like how you responded to an ad on this site (or on another site) in order to measure the effectiveness of and improve the quality of ads.
We also put together data from the information we already have about you and your friends. For example, we may put together data about you to determine which resources, opportunities, and connections to suggest to you. We may put together your current city with GPS and other location information we have about you to, for example, tell you and your friends about local resources and opportunities. We may also put together data about you to serve you ads that might be more relevant to you.
When we get your GPS location, we put it together with other location information we have about you (like your current city). We only provide data to our advertising partners or customers after we have removed your name or any other personally identifying information from it, or have combined it with other people's data in a way that it is no longer associated with you.
Information you choose to make public
Choosing to make your information public is exactly what it sounds like: anyone, including people off of this site, will be able to see it. By posting information to this site you are making it public unless given the opportunity to make it private or noted that the information is private.
Choosing to make your information public also means that this information can be associated with you (i.e., your name, profile pictures, organizations, tags, experiences, etc.) and can show up when someone does a search on this site or on a public search engine. Sometimes you will not be able to select an audience when you post something. This is because some types of stories are always public stories. As a general rule, you should assume the information you share will be publicly available. When others share information about you, they can also choose to make it public.
Information that is always publicly available
The types of information listed below are always publicly available, and are treated just like information you decided to make public.
Usernames and User IDs
A Username is a custom link to your timeline that you can give out to people or post on external websites. Usernames appear in the URL on your timeline. We also use your User ID to identify your MedicalMissions.com account.
How we use the information we receive
We use the information we receive about you in connection with the services and features we provide to you and other users like your friends, our partners, and the developers, applications, and websites you use. For example, in addition to helping people see and find things that you do and share, we may use the information we receive about you:
Granting us this permission not only allows us to provide this site as it exists today, but it also allows us to provide you with innovative features and services we develop in the future that use the information we receive about you in new ways. While you are allowing us to use the information we receive about you, you always own all of your information. Your trust is important to us, which is why we don't share information we receive about you with others unless we have received your permission; given you notice, such as by telling you about it in this policy; or removed your name or any other personally identifying information from it. Of course, for information others share about you, they control how it is shared. We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others, including those described above.
Deleting and deactivating your account
If you want to stop using your account, you can either deactivate or delete it.
Deactivating your account puts your account on hold. Other users will no longer see your information, but we do not delete any of your information. Deactivating an account is the same as you telling us not to delete any information because you might want to reactivate your account at some point in the future. Your friends will still see you listed in their list of friends while your account is deactivated.
When you delete an account, it is permanently deleted from this site. It typically takes about one month to delete an account, but some information may remain in backup copies and logs for up to 90 days. You should only delete your account if you are sure you never want to reactivate it. Certain information is needed to provide you with services, so we only delete this information after you delete your account. Some of the things you do on this site aren't stored in your account.
Using Facebook Social Login/Logging into this site using Facebook
The Facebook Platform lets you log into other applications and websites using your Facebook account. When you log in using Facebook, Facebook gives this site your User ID (just like when you connect with any other application), but Facebook does not share your email address or password with us through this process without your permission.
If you already have an account on this site, we may also be able to connect that account with your Facebook account. Sometimes we do this using what is called an "email hash,” which is similar to searching for someone on this site using an email address. Only the email addresses in this case are hashed so no email addresses are actually shared between Facebook and this site.
How it works
This site sends over a hashed version of your email address, and Facebook matches it with a database of email addresses that Facebook has also hashed. If there is a match, then Facebook tells us the User ID associated with the email address. This way, when you log into this site using Facebook, this site can link your Facebook account to your account on this site.
About social plugins
Social plugins are buttons, boxes, friend’s lists, and stories (such as the Like button) that this site and other websites can use to present Facebook content to you and create more social and personal experiences for you. While you view these buttons, boxes, and stories on other sites, the content comes directly from Facebook. Sometimes plugins act just like applications. You can spot one of these plugins because it will ask you for permission to access your information or to publish information back to Facebook. For example, if you use a registration plugin on this site, the plugin will ask your permission to share your basic info with this site to make it easier for you to register for this site. Similarly, if you use an Add To Timeline plugin, the plugin will ask your permission to publish stories about your activities on this site to Facebook.
Cookies, Pixels, and Other System Technologies
Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on your computer, mobile phone or other device. Pixels are small blocks of code on webpages that do things like allow another server to measure viewing of a webpage and often are used in connection with cookies. We use technologies like cookies, pixels, and local storage (like on your browser or device, which is similar to a cookie but holds more information) to provide and understand a range of products and services.
We use these technologies to do things like:
For example, we may use them to know you are logged in to this site, to help you use social plugins and share buttons, or to know when you are interacting with our advertising or Platform partners. We may ask advertisers or other partners to serve ads or services to computers, mobile phones or other.

EXHIBITOR'S AGREEMENT FOR GLOBAL MISSIONS HEALTH CONFERENCE
THIS AGREEMENT is made by and between, EXHIBITOR, and Southeast Christian Church in consideration of the mutual promises contained herein and for other good and valuable consideration, Exhibitor and Church agree as follows:
Our Church’s facilities and real estate were provided through God’s benevolence and by the sacrificial generosity of our Church members. The Church desires that its facilities be used for the fellowship of the Body of Christ and to bring God glory. Although the facilities are not generally available for use by groups other than ministries of the Church, we make our facilities available to other approved groups as a witness to our faith, in a spirit of Christian charity, and as a means of demonstrating the Gospel of Jesus Christ in practice.
Church is willing to grant a revocable license to Exhibitor subject to the terms and conditions of this Exhibitor Agreement.
SECTION I: CONFERENCE
The Church may provide an Exhibit Hall in connection with the conference in the locations designated by the Church.
SECTION II: EXHIBIT SPACE
The Church shall provide an Exhibit Hall, for the use of EXHIBITOR, the following space: one (1) 10' x 10' booth space with 10' high back drape, one (1) 8' x 24" table, two (2) chairs, one (1) one-line, black on white identification sign, one (1) 120 volt dual power outlet, and a wireless internet connection. Booths will be provided in packages that include the ability to request additional booth spaces.
In addition to the terms and conditions contained herein, the terms and conditions contained in The Exhibitor Policy Guide are incorporated herein by reference. By registering as an Exhibitor, EXHIBITOR represents that it has read and agrees to comply with the terms and conditions in The Exhibitor Policy Guide.
SECTION III: COST SHARING CONTRIBUTIONS (the “Cost Sharing Contributions”):
The parties agree that the Cost Sharing Contributions, noted on the conference registration page, are amounts that Exhibitor will pay to Church to reimburse Church for amounts paid for expenses attributable to Exhibitor’s use of the space or in order to defray the cost of using Church’s facility. Cost Sharing Contributions are non-refundable. Church will furnish heat or air conditioning and light as provided by existing equipment and fixtures in the Booth Space during GMHC hours only. Church will furnish set up of pipe and drape, 1 table and electrical. Any additional electrical current required by Exhibitor will be paid for by Exhibitor at the prevailing rate, as may be charged to the Church. Any additional facilities or equipment required to furnish additional electrical current to meet the needs of Exhibitor will be paid for by Exhibitor provided, however, that none shall be installed unless agreed to by Church in writing in advance. In addition, the Church will provide set up and clean up services.
SECTION IV: NO CHARGE FOR USE OF SPACE
There is no charge for the use of space for Exhibitor’s Booth.
SECTION V: OBJECTIONABLE DISPLAYS
The Church reserves the right to restrict or terminate the operation of any display that may become objectionable to Church, other EXHIBITORS or the public by reason of excessive noise, breaking any rules and regulations communicated by Southeast Christian Church staff, or for any other reason. In such an event, none of the EXHIBITOR’S payments for use of the space will be refunded.
Should the Church determine, that its decision to accept an EXHIBITOR was based upon misleading information or that an EXHIBITOR has displayed behavior, which creates an unhealthy ministry or training environment for GMHC attendees or violates Southeast Christian Church’s policies or statement of faith, the Church may refuse to provide space to such EXHIBITOR, in Church’s sole discretion.
In which case EXHIBITOR shall not be entitled to any refund of any cost sharing contributions paid to the Church. Regardless of whether EXHIBITOR receives any refund of amounts paid, EXHIBITOR waives any claim for loss or damages suffered by EXHIBITOR on account of the refusal to provide space by GMHC arising in whole or in part from EXHIBITOR providing false information or engaging in other misconduct set forth herein above.

We are not aware of any beliefs that are professed by our sublicensees or invitees using the booth space, including, but not limited to, exhibitors, displayers or sponsors that contradict the beliefs of the Church.

e. We understand that the Church does not allow its facilities to be generally available to the public, and that our use of these facilities is subject to the Church Lead Team’s approval as set forth in the Facility Use Policy, which is conditioned in part on my agreement to the requirements in the Church’s “Facility Use Policy,” a copy of which I have read and understood, as referred to in Section VI.1 above.
f. We understand that we will be responsible for any damages to the Church facilities resulting from this proposed use of booth space.
3. Revocable License. This Agreement creates a license from Church to Exhibitor to use the booth space in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. The license created hereby is revocable by Church (a) upon the occurrence of an Event of Default (hereinafter defined); or (b) as provided in Paragraph 10.
4. Condition of Booth Space: Alterations; Termination or Expiration. Exhibitor accepts the booth space in an “AS IS” condition without any obligation by Church to alter or make changes to the booth space or any of the physical facilities. Exhibitor may not alter the booth space or any of the physical facilities in any way without Church’s prior written approval. All decorations must be approved by Church in advance of the conference. At the end of the GMHC, Exhibitor shall vacate the booth space leaving it in the same condition as it was at the beginning of the GMHC.
5. Compliance with Laws and Regulations: Permits. Exhibitor covenants and agrees to abide by all rules and regulations established by Church and its authorized representatives; to provide any licenses and permits required to comply with federal, state, county and city laws, statutes, resolutions and ordinances; and to incur no bills or obligations for labor, materials or otherwise for which Church may be or become liable. Exhibitor agrees to collect and remit states sales tax for merchandise it sells and to hold Church harmless from such taxes as outlined in section to follow.
6. Indemnification.

If such termination occurs during the GMHC, all amounts paid by Exhibitor will not be refundable. In the event of such termination, Exhibitor hereby waives any claims for damages or compensation, which might arise out of such termination.
8. Default; Remedies. If Exhibitor violates any of the terms, stipulations, conditions or covenants provided herein (each such violation shall be hereinafter referred to as an “Event of Default”), such a violation shall, at the option of Church, (i) entitle Church to revoke the license created by this Exhibitor Agreement, in which event, Exhibitor shall immediately vacate the Booth Space, after having returned the booth space to its condition at the GMHC registration date, and (ii) constitute a forfeiture of all amounts previously paid to Church, the same to be treated as partial liquidated damages, and no portion thereof shall be returned to Exhibitor. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, all Cost Sharing Contributions (plus, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) incurred by Church in connection with this Exhibitor Agreement shall be immediately due and payable by Exhibitor to Church.
9. Damage. If the booth space, or any portion of the booth space, shall be damaged by the act, default or negligence of the Exhibitor or its agents, employees, licensees, invitees, patrons, guest, Exhibitor will pay to Church, upon demand, such sum as shall be necessary to restore the booth space to its present condition, as determined in the sole and absolute discretion of Church.
