PUB RESTORED INTO A CHURCH - Salem Danville, Pretoria, South Africa


Salem Danville's first service was under a carport on the 1st of March 2009 with 6 people. We started because the people of Danville spoke a need of a Biblical, relevant and alive church.

In December of 2009 we took over an old pub in Danville and renovated it into our church - a miracle done by God! Today we minister to about 100 people, 30 teenagers and 60 children.
Danville is a poor area in Pretoria West, South Africa - unique in a sense that there is poor people of all cultures and races.

Our vision - to bring His Peace and restoration to the people of Danville. To show them that your circumstances do not dictate God's love for you. Jesus loves all, no matter who you are, what you've done, or how much money you have!

Share the joy of ministering to the poor with us in this blog!

How to hit the bull’s eye

Yesterday we saw that you can sin by not doing what God asks from you.

The one kind of sin is motivated by the devil, tempting you to do wrong. The other kind of sin is not listening to the motivation of our Father to do right.

The sin of not doing right comes from the Greek word “hamartano” – which means to miss the mark and missing the prize. Every time we choose to ignore His voice to do something right, we miss a blessing and a heavenly reward from Him. He will always reward us for our obedience like sowing money, giving a Scripture to someone, making a phone call…

The Bible gives us some guidelines to be obedient to His voice to do right: Heb. 4:7 “….Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts."

§  Today:
·         Be obedient today, not tomorrow
·         If you delay, it will most probably not happen
·         What must you do today?
·         Make that phone call, send that verse, give that gift…!
§  Hear:
·         You have to listen to God
·         To listen you have to keep quiet
·         Don’t give because it’s a good idea
·         Give when it is a God idea
·         This is born out if a deep intimate relationship with your Father
§  Heart:
·         You have to have a responsive heart
·         Cleans your heart from the sin that is motivated by the devil
·         Do it with a willing heart

In this way you will hit the bull’s eye in the middle and receive a heavenly prize!
