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!

Praying with faith

We are still busy with the dynamic subject of prayer! 

This week I shared another requirement for prayer with our congregation: 

Hebrews 11:6(NKJV)
6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. 

It is impossible to pray without faith. Hebrew teaches us that faith is to first believe that God exists and that He also rewards each and every one who seeks Him diligently! 

If you show me a man of faith, I will without a doubt know that he is a man of prayer. And if you show me a man of prayer, I will know he is a man of faith! Prayer and faith is inseparable! 

But it is more than only to believe that God exists. It is to trust in His character – believing that He is good, reliable and faithful! That He is able to deliver on His promises and that He is ultimately in control.  

If you know His character in this way, you will be able to pray like Jesus in reverential submission: “Lord… not as I will, but as You will”. Because you will know that He is indeed good, that His will for your life is better that your own and that His plans are better than your own. 

If you have this kind of faith, you will receive what you pray for: 

Matthew 21:22(AMP)
22And whatever you ask for in prayer, having faith and [really] believing, you will receive.
