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!

God’s presence brings success

What is your picture of success?  

The dictionary says that success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose or the attainment of popularity or profit. This is exactly the way the world view success - what you have accumulated in this life and the way it brings you popularity with your peers. 

God’s picture of success looks a little bit different: 

Gen 39:1-2(NLT)
When Joseph was taken to Egypt by the Ishmaelite traders, he was purchased by Potiphar, an Egyptian officer. Potiphar was captain of the guard for Pharaoh, the king of Egypt.

The LORD was with Joseph, so he succeeded in everything he did as he served in the home of his Egyptian master.  

Joseph was a slave, he didn’t own anything and had no aim or purpose at that stage of his life. According the world’d definition of success he was a definite failure. But according to God’s definition, Joseph was a success. 

He was successfull just because of one reason... God’s presence! 

It isn’t the right adress of fancy car that makes you successful. Success isn’t what you have, but rather Who you have! 

If you accepted Jesus, you are the temple of God and He lives inside of you.  

His precense inside of you, makes you a success!
