Every January, we do a church-wide 21 Day Fast. Below is the information we provide during that fast, but we hope it can be useful to you all throughout the year, whenever you fast!
*It is best to consult with your physician prior to starting a food fast of any kind, especially if you are taking medication or under the care of a doctor for any kind of ailment.*

In Matthew chapter 6, Jesus said "WHEN you give, WHEN you pray, and WHEN you fast." As followers of Christ, these areas are not merely suggested, but expected. Whether you've never fasted before, or you've already discovered the power of this biblical practice, we are excited for you to partner in faith with us!
The goal of fasting is first and foremost to draw nearer to God. Biblical fasting 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. Perhaps you are believing God specifically for breakthrough in an area. Whether it's direction, finance, family, or healing, fasting denies your flesh and builds your spirit, realigning your focus on God!
Remember, your personal fast should present a level of challenge with the ultimate goal of seeking God in prayer and drawing nearer to His heart. It should follow what Jesus outlined in Matthew 6:16-18 and not be legalistic or bragging, but done with a humble heart before God.
