A church congregation is trending on social media after a video of them celebrating Orlando Pirates' derby win was shared. In the video, members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church can be seen singing and dancing while waving the Pirates banner.

Orlando Pirates defeated rivals Kaizer Chiefs in the Carling Black Label Cup at FNB Stadium on Saturday. Pirates beat Chiefs 2-0 in the 8th edition of the cup. Augustine Mulenga and Thembinkosi Lorch netted goals for Pirates. The Buccaneers have won the title five times since 2011.

Mzansi Pirates fans were elated at the result and clearly some even took their celebrations into the house of God. The viral video has received many reactions, with one social media user calling Pirates a "blessed team". Twitter user OjayTsime said:

"Lol it must be really difficult to fan other teams and attend here."

While Black_OOSi said:

"This team can easily replace Jesus in these churches."

Not all reactions were postive, however, as Twitter user Ndumiso69889293 said:

"Nope it's pure madness . Never will I attend that church . When I attend church I want to pray and connect to my God. Not what I'm seeing. Yes stadium is a relevant place but not the church please."

Photos of the Caucasian male, whom they are calling 'Jesus', were captured while he was speaking to a group of people in what appears to be a church. The pictures are now making waves on the internet and have left many with some pressing questions.
