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!

Look Up!

Have you ever watched someone who really lost all hope? The most obvious is in the way they walk - with a drooping head and eyes looking down.

Jesus said that in these last days there will be difficult times and unfortunately being a Christian will not free you from these troubles.

The problems of this world must however distinguish us as children of God. We must show the world we are different in the way we look at the troubles of this world…

Jesus gave us clear direction:

Luke 21:28(NLT)
28 So when all these things begin to happen, stand and look up, for your salvation is near!”

True Christians are people who will despite of the most difficult times, keep on looking up!

Revelation 1:7b (NLT)
 7 Look! He comes with the clouds of heaven.
      And everyone will see him—
      even those who pierced him…

We can keep on looking up because we have hope in our hearts. We know that the problems of this world are only momentarily, that one day our Jesus will come on the clouds for each and every one who accepts Him as their personal Savior!

You might be going through a tough time right now. The way to get hope in your heart is to look up… because He is coming back!
