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!

Nothing is too dead!

The Dead Sea is dead! There is not one living creature in the Dead Sea and because there is no outflow, it is shrinking yearly!

It seems that the future of the Dead Sea is not very promising. But not even the Dead Sea is too dead for our God!

Ezekiel 47:8-10(NLT)
8 Then he said to me, “This river flows east through the desert into the valley of the Dead Sea. The waters of this stream will make the salty waters of the Dead Sea fresh and pure. 9 There will be swarms of living things wherever the water of this river flows. Fish will abound in the Dead Sea, for its waters will become fresh. Life will flourish wherever this water flows. 10 Fishermen will stand along the shores of the Dead Sea. All the way from En-gedi to En-eglaim, the shores will be covered with nets drying in the sun. Fish of every kind will fill the Dead Sea, just as they fill the Mediterranean.

Ezekiel is shown a vision of the temple in Jerusalem. He sees a river flowing from the temple that gives life to the desert and makes the salty water of the Dead Sea fresh and pure!

There is nothing on this earth that is capable to subtract the salt of the Dead Sea to make it living again. The only thing that can make the Dead Sea alive again is the water flowing from the Temple of God!

In the same way, nothing can wash away the corrupt nature of man except the living water that comes from Jesus Christ!

Like the Judean wilderness and the Dead Sea, we can receive healing, increased abundance of life, and even eternal life as a result of partaking of the water of life that issues forth from the presence of God in the temple.

John 4:14(AMP)
14But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing, bubbling) [continually] within him unto (into, for) eternal life.

So no matter how “dead” you are, drinking from His living water will bring you back to life!
