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!

Who are you?

Do you know who you are?

For a long time I struggled to figure out who I am. I searched in all the wrong places. Most of the time looking outside myself for the answer. Just to realize that the answer was already inside me!

The Message describes it so beautiful:

Ephesians 1:11(MSG)
 11It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for…

When you realize who Jesus is inside of you, your true identity is established  and you can fulfill your Godly purpose. It is shown in Matthew 16 through Peter:

Matthew 16:13-17(AMP)
13Now when Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, Who do people say that the Son of Man is?
    14And they answered, Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.
    15He said to them, But who do you [yourselves] say that I am?
    16Simon Peter replied, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.
    17Then Jesus answered him, Blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are you, Simon Bar-Jonah. For flesh and blood [men] have not revealed this to you, but My Father Who is in heaven.

After Peter had the revelation of whom Jesus was, Jesus made an amazing revelation to Peter:

Matthew 16:18-19(NIV)
18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Start today by acknowledging Him as the Christ, the Son of the living God. Then know Him through a personal relationship and He will reveal to you who you are and what you are living for!
