21 Days of Prayer and Fasting

What is fasting?

The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out. It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for all the good things God desires to bring into our lives. Remember, your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your body, your options, and, most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.

Types of Fasts

Your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your body, your options, and most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.

COMPLETE FAST
In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.

SELECTIVE FAST
This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, and bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.

PARTIAL FAST
This fast is sometimes called the “Jewish Fast” and involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.

SOUL FAST
This fast is a great option if you do not have much experience fasting food, have health issues that prevent you from fasting food, or if you wish to refocus certain areas of your life that are out of balance. For example, you might choose to stop using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast and then carefully bring that element back into your life in healthy doses at the conclusion of the fast.

About Water Baptism

Water Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows a person's decision to follow Christ.  When a Christian is water baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and lifted out of the water identifying with Jesus' resurrection.  When you are water baptized you are publicly declaring that you are a follower of Christ, that you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and that you are now apart of a new family. 

The Next Water Baptism

The next water baptism will happen Sunday, January 27, in the Cedar Hill Campus cafe area directly following our 2nd service.  Invite your friends and family to be apart of this important day in your life!

Baby dedication is a ceremony signifying a parent's commitment to training up their child in a God-honoring home.  It also signifies Church on the Hill's commitment to providing a loving and Biblical community that prays for and supports your family.

If you have a new addition to the family or have been wanting to dedicate your little one to the Lord, we want to give you the opportunity to do so! During our second service at the Cedar Hill Campus on February 3rd, we will have a Baby Dedication ceremony for you and your family.
