I believe Souls’ Harbour should be a place where people can worship freely without inhibitions! A place where we anchor our souls to the unadulterated Word of God and there we find a place of refuge in God! A place where we build our life on the Rock and find safety while living in this present evil world. A church where people can grow and find a place of ministry and edify the body of Christ and also become an asset to the kingdom of God.
Marty Roberts was born on May 21, 1957, to Kermit and Barbara Roberts. He was baptized in the name of Jesus and filled with the Holy Ghost at the age of 21 years old. He never had been around Pentecost until he walked into Woodcrest United Pentecostal Church in Goldsboro, NC. That day he found a total life change! It was not long before he heard the voice of God speak to his life about ministry.
Later while still in the Air Force was transferred to Kunsan, Korea. While there attended services with Rev. Ronald Turner who now is a Missionary to Russia and also attended services with Rev. Elton and Loretta Bernard. When back in the United States he joined an Assemblies of the Lord Jesus Christ church on Davis Street called the Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ and served there for 13 years as an Assistant Pastor. Also during this time was on a weekly local cable Television station where he helped start a ministry called “The Two Edged Sword.”
Pastor Roberts also pastored a church near Martinsville, Va for approximately two years. From a burden of teaching a bible study to a family in Madison NC there sprang up a church that was at first called Truth Outreach Center which now has become Souls’ Harbour Church in Mayodan. Pastor Roberts also was on Total Christian Television on a regular basis with a program called “Ask the Pastor” on a regular basis. During his time of Pastor the church purchased the present facility where they presently have service.
After 8 years of ministry he resigned the church and he and his family started attending New Life Tabernacle church in Kernersville, NC. Served as Assistant Pastor and was licensed with the United Pentecostal Church! After nearly 6 years of ministry he accepted the pastorate of Souls’ Harbour Church of Mayodan.
Also while Assistant Pastor in Eden, NC was also appointed Southeastern District Youth Director and was elected for a second term in the Assemblies of the Lord Jesus Christ. Was on board while the present Superintendant of the Assemblies of the Lord Jesus Christ was National Youth Director.
Pastor Roberts has been married to Ruth Roberts since January 1st of 1999 and has two wonderful children: Joshua and Bethany Roberts. Sis Roberts became a light to his eyes and a blessing to his ministry and also has faithfully supported and encouraged him in his ministry. They are looking forward to and expecting great things for the future of Souls’ Harbour because they serve a Great God!
