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!

Heaven’s currency

Whenever you decide to travel to another land there is a few things to consider.

One of these things is money. Each land has their own currency and it will be almost impossible to buy anything in a foreign land with your own country’s money.

­Currency can be defined as a unit of purchasing power. It is a medium of exchange, a substitute for goods or services. It doesn't have to be the coins or bills with which you're probably most familiar. In fact, through the ages, everything from large stone wheels, knives and slabs of salt have been used as money.

Here in South Africa we use the Rand. If I were to travel to America, I’ll have to exchange some Rand for Dollars; otherwise I will not be able to buy anything in America.

Heaven also has a currency!

Matthew 6:20-21(NIV)
20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

But what is heaven’s treasure? In what currency does our heavenly Father operate in?

Our Father makes payments with only one currency. The moment He had to pay for something He used this currency…

This currency is of immeasurable worth and there is no higher currency in the universe!

On earth, this currency is not worth much; but in heaven a life of one person has more value than all the gold in the whole world!

Most people on earth don’t respect or value life anymore. For God however there is nothing with a higher value than a life! He proved this to us when He paid the ultimate price with the life of His Son, Jesus Christ!

Heaven’s treasures are people! Do you operate in heaven’s currency?
