2 Total Sessions

The issue of same-sex activity is a topic of much debate among Christians. What is often missing in these discussions, however, is a clear understanding of what the Bible actually states about this subject. This presentation by Dr. Jeffrey Weima reviews what the New Testament says on this important moral matter. (Please note: Some content may not be suitable for young children.)

Onward: Engaging the Culture without Losing the Gospel with Dr. Russell Moore

3 Total Sessions

How do followers of Jesus live in a society that seems increasingly distant from historic Christian values? Do we lash out in anger or retreat in despair? As Christianity seems increasingly strange, and even subversive, we have the opportunity to reclaim the uniqueness of the gospel and its power to transform lives and impact the world. With humble confidence, let's learn to engage the culture without losing the gospel!

Dr. Moore is President of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. He is a frequent cultural commentator on CNN, Fox News, and other networks, an ethicist and theologian by background, and an ordained Southern Baptist minister. Moore is author of several books, including Onward: Engaging the Culture without Losing the Gospel. A native Mississippian, he and his wife Maria are the parents of five sons.

God’s Unfolding Story

5 Total Sessions

There is something about the power of a good story. Stories can change the way we view a subject or the world around us. The Bible is full of stories of all kinds, but is there a reason why so much of the Bible is told in story form? I

Dig

3 Total Sessions

The DIG video series was developed to help address real questions that people may have about faith issues, specifically about the Christian faith. Through interviews, narration, and engaging visual images, the intent is to look below the surface on some of these questions and dig a little deeper to consider some possible answers.

This first series deals with questions about the Bible. In these three videos, we discuss the following six questions:

Who wrote the Bible?
How is the Bible put together?
What is the main message of the Bible?
Why should the Bible be an authority in my life?
Why are there so many translations?
Has the Bible changed over time?

Spiritual Practices

5 Total Sessions

How will you mature as a Christian in the upcoming year? How will you experience a more vibrant relationship with Christ? How will your character be transformed so that you look more like Jesus? This Immersion Conference will attempt to address and accomplish God's goal for us: conform us to the image of His Son (see Romans 8:289-29). Dr. Donald Whitney, well-known author of "Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life", presents biblical spiritual disciplines for real people. The purpose, however, is not simply to introduce you to such things as Bible Study and prayer, but to see how these, and other practices, can be a part of pursuing intimacy with and conformity to Christ. Go deeper in your relationship with Christ and develop these habits that will transform your life.

Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth

3 Total Sessions

On May 12, 2012, Dr. Robert Plummer instructed Immersion attendees on how to Rightly Divide the Word of Truth. Using heavy scripture references and engaging examples, Dr. Plummer guides leaders and students of God's Word through these questions: Why is sound biblical interpretation so important and how do I practice it? What is my goal when reading the Bible? How do I understand and apply the different types of literature in the Bible?

If you desire to be a student of the Word, or if you are a teacher of Holy Scripture, you will find this study to be instructive and very helpful.

Dr. Plummer is a professor of New Testament Interpretation at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and author of 40 Questions About Interpreting the Bible.
