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!

Eternal life

How would you describe eternal life?

Yesterday we said that our greatest pleasure in life is not only to receive something from God, but to experience His goodness and coming to know who He is!

Knowing God was one of Paul’s determined purposes in his life. The most interesting perspective of knowing God was however written by John:

John 17:3(NIV)
Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

My perspective of eternal life was that it started the day I would enter into heaven through Jesus Christ. John changed my perspective totally…

Eternal life is to know the Father and the Son!

Your eternal life begins the day you start the journey of knowing who God is! The Greek word for “know” is ginosko. Ginosko may be defined as an intimate acquaintance with someone through a growing, progressive relationship.

In essence, eternal life is a growing relationship with God. It starts here on earth through Jesus, and it will carry on into eternity… because it will actually take an eternity to truly know our amazing Father!
