A well-known and respected Los Angeles radio personality in the early 1930’s, Paul Myers’ life was out of control. His success had brought him no happiness and his alcoholism had even forced his wife to kick him out, though she continued to pray for his salvation and recovery.
Reduced to the life of a homeless alcoholic, Paul Myers sought refuge in a San Diego church service. After being turned away because of his repellent and drunken appearance, Myers went back to his cheap hotel and started reading the Gideon Bible. Convicted of his sin and devastated by his circumstances, he sought forgiveness and professed faith in Christ. One month later he was back on the radio, but this time as a broken man saved by grace — it was 1934 and The Haven of Rest radio broadcast had begun.
Since that time, God has used this ministry to bring thousands to faith in Christ. Now called HAVEN Today, the daily broadcast airs on more than 600 stations in North America and around the world. Through the Anchor daily devotional guide, thousands more are encouraged each day to live their lives through Christ and for Christ.
Haven Ministries is united with one common purpose . . . to tell the Great Story that’s all about Jesus.
About Charles Morris

Statement of Faith
We believe the Holy Scriptures are God’s Word, divinely inspired, infallible, the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, his full divinity, his virgin birth, his sinless humanity, his atoning death, his bodily resurrection, his ascension, his present mediatorial work at the right hand of God and his personal imminent return in power and glory.
We believe in the Holy Spirit who regenerates, indwells and empowers believers to bear fruit for God.
We believe there is salvation for sinners through the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ by grace through faith, apart from works.
We believe all true believers are united in Christ and together comprise the church, the Body of Christ.
We believe the church is commissioned by Christ to go into the world and make disciples of all nations.
We believe there will be a resurrection and a final judgment; the lost will be eternally condemned and the saved will enter into their inheritance in the new heavens and the new earth.
