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!

From a guest to God

Yesterday day’s jars of clay, made me think of the first miracle Jesus ever preformed.

It was at a wedding in Cana. The wine supply ran out during the festivities so Jesus’ mother told him, “They have no more wine.” “Dear woman, that’s not our problem,” Jesus replied. “My time has not yet come.” But his mother told the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” 

Firstly it is interesting to note that Jesus initially said no, but because of His mother’s faith in Him she told the servants to do whatever He tells them. Jesus honored her, not only because of her faith, but primarily because Jesus will never go against the Word. He honored His mother – as the Bible commands us to do!

Standing nearby were six stone water jars, used for Jewish ceremonial washing. Each could hold twenty to thirty gallons. So Jesus told the servants to fill the jars to the full with water.

Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”

The water in the six stone jars was turned into wine!

The pots needed to be filled up to the brim – in the same we need to be filled up with God’s presence. A filled up vessel, is a vessel ready for a miracle.

A filled up vessel is a person who not only invited Jesus as a guest in their life, but allow Him to be God in every part of your life!

John 2:11(NLT) says:
 11 This miraculous sign at Cana in Galilee was the first time Jesus revealed his glory. And his disciples believed in him.

Make sure Jesus is not only a guest in your life. Invite Him to fill you to the full each and every day then He will reveal His glory through you and miracles will take place!
