The Power of Simplicity

Do we make the Bible too hard? Or do we think that because the Bible is our foundational truth it should be hard to validate its immense meaning? The Bible is what we build our lives and faith on. We need to be grounded in the Word, and God in his wisdom delivered it to us in letters, poems, books of history—ways that we could understand and that would bring us closer to him. But in our attempt to go deeper, have we created barriers to the powerful simplicity of reading God’s Word?

Immerse: The Bible Reading Experience was born out of the necessity to help people engage or reengage with God’s Word. Hundreds of people stop reading their Bibles every day, and if we aren’t reading God’s Word, how can we build our lives on its truth? Without Bible reading, lives are not being built on that foundational rock and are instead resting on the shifting sands of others’ beliefs and cultural norms.

Immerse focuses on three core ideas: reading a naturally formatted Bible, reading at length, and having unmediated discussions about it together. By simply reading and then gathering once per week in “book club” style groups, people have a place to voice their questions, talk about their concerns, and celebrate “aha!” moments together.

Each Immerse experience is designed to take a group through a significant portion of the Bible in eight weeks. It’s intentionally uncomplicated. It simply gives people the opportunity to read the Bible, discover its story, and journey through it with their community. By returning to a more natural Bible reading experience, we believe people can truly read and understand God’s Word.

We’re delighted that entire church congregations, small groups, book clubs, families, and even unexpected communities (read how Immerse is being used in Angola Prison) across the country are reading Immerse together. By creating an environment where people feel encouraged to share, it invites people into a better understanding of God’s Word and a deeper relationship with him and each other.

  4. Immerse; thank you for all the work you do, in the Lords name! I have been looking for a simpler way of sharing the joy and glory we can have in His word! (The holy bible) the Old Testament for me has been a challenge for me to read let alone say out loud! So I do think it will be worth why’ll to check it out, I am eager to start a book club through FaceTime!

  5. Immerse;
    Thank you for all the work that you do in bring souls to Our Lord, I have wanted to serve the Lord in everything I do. I have been praying for my family, from the day I became a Christian! We live very far from each other, so I thought if I only could find similar bibles so we all could all be on the same page! The Old Testament was a challenge to read! I’m looking so forward to starting up a book club on FaceTime! I give God all the glory and all the people said Amen! It’s not me, but Him! all we need is the faith the size of a mustard seed to move mountains! May God the father, continue the work He has started in you!
