Welcome to Immersion Church
Here at Immersion, we believe that scripture is our starting block. It has to be. Within the Bible we have found that life with God can be broken down into five relatable categories.
1. Walking with God.
2. Spiritual warfare.
5. On Mission.
We have found that the life of Jesus comes through these five avenues, and we are all about them in every facet of life. We believe that in order to really receive the "life overflowing" that Jesus offers, it is paramount to engage in these five practices.
The Story of Immersion Church
Immersion Church is not currently a member of any particular denomination. We are most closely associated with “Converge Worldwide” and “Wild at Heart Ministries”. Garat and Randy have both been pastors in the Converge Worldwide Church Association, serving together in Duvall Washington at Adventure Community Church, a daughter church of Cascade Community Church of Monroe.
We would both refer to our time as professional pastors in “main-stream” warehouse-style evangelical Church as wonderful and helpful in so many ways. However, we also think of it as somewhat lacking in terms of what “church” offers. American Evangelicalism has come to offer largely an anonymous spectator experience. It’s members are often not truly known nor do many truly find their unique place in the story God is telling.
When it comes to “life to the full” that Jesus said He came to bring, we find that few Christian church attenders would say that they are experiencing it? Through studying the Word of God, we find that the Life of God comes to us through the 5 different streams or paths. Few find that “life to the full” Jesus spoke of because they are not walking in all five streams.
Both Randy and Garat as well as their spouses have experienced profound spiritual and soul transformation through events facilitated by Ransomed Heart Ministries introducing how to walk in all four. As we have engaged these streams, our hearts have come alive and we have fallen more in love with Jesus. Life to the full feels normal. Bringing this to others is our passion and heartbeat. The 5 streams have become our Core Values. A life immersed in Jesus will require walking in all five.
