Beneatha is displayed as the modern woman in the play.  She embraces the full extent of the freedom that is promised to all young Americans in the 1960s and 1970s and is willing to do what she can to absorb it all.  Her perception of God is driven from her mother and grandmother, who hold a more traditionalist view of divinity and the relationship to it.  It is not that Beneatha rejects God, but rather examines the concept in a modern setting, looking at issues of materialism, freedom, and choice in this design.  She is not going to embrace any structure that seeks to detract from her freedom, which is why we don't see her fully reject nor fully embrace the concept of the divine.
