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!

Back to school!

Today, once again, was the beginning of a new school year. My daughter of seven years couldn’t wait to start her second year of school! This morning there were no effort getting her out of bed and she even made her own lunch, something that has never happened before! She was ready to go back to school to embark on a new season of learning…

This made me think of a Scripture that I recently read in the Message:

Colossians 2:6(MSG)
 6-7My counsel for you is simple and straightforward: Just go ahead with what you've been given. You received Christ Jesus, the Master; now live him. You're deeply rooted in him. You're well constructed upon him. You know your way around the faith. Now do what you've been taught. School's out; quit studying the subject and start living it! And let your living spill over into thanksgiving.

Most of us have been “studying” the Subject of our faith for a very long time! But unfortunately that is where we stop. We have the theory, but have an in-ability to apply this in our daily life.

This Scripture is very straight forward – start living what you’ve learned!

Somebody made the following comment: If you were actually “convicted” of being a Christian, would they get enough evidence against you?

As Christians our lives need to show that we are following Christ – we need to talk and walk differently!

If you struggle – God might just send you back to school!
