Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 1:2

On behalf of the Better Life Church Family, First Lady Velma F. McNair and I are honored to extend Holy Greetings in the wonderful and powerful name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are blessed that you, our friends and visitors, are visiting our web site and we pray that God will pour out of His spirit a blessing upon you. As you navigate through the pages of our site, we hope you will experience a Better Life that is provided to us by God, Through Jesus Christ His Son!

The pages of our site offer a glimpse of who we are, what we believe, and how to contact us. If you would like to speak with me, First Lady Velma, or with one of our ministry leaders, you may email us at betterlifecogic@gmail.com, call us at (757) 543-4444 or complete a prayer request form online blmprayerrequest@aol.com. We believe, according to the bible, that it is God who has made us and not we ourselves; we are the sheep of His pasture. Therefore, it would be a humbling privilege to serve you, one of God’s people. I believe that if we Put God First (PGF), God’s order will provide salvation, deliverance, and healing in our homes, churches, communities, and abroad.

I invite you to worship and fellowship with us at Better Life Church, We are dedicated to making a difference where we are. If you are experiencing a Better Life….Share It!

Thank you for visiting the Better Life Church Of God In Christ web site!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:” (Ephesians 1:3)


Better Life Church Of God In Christ was founded in May 1993 by Elder Duane S. McNair, Sr., along with his wife, Missionary Velma F. McNair; and sons, Elder Duane S. McNair, Jr. and Elder Jonathan Lee McNair, Sr. The first church was located at 2210 Myers Road, a Masonic lodge in the South Norfolk section of Chesapeake, Virginia. In 2000, the Lord blessed Better Life Church to purchase a permanent church home at 2101 Atlantic Avenue, Chesapeake, Virginia. It was indeed a joyous day, June 20, 2000; we paraded from our old home to our new home. We are now located at the most traveled intersection in Chesapeake, at the corners of Battlefield Boulevard, Campostella Road, and Atlantic Avenue! To God be the Glory!..

Steps to Salvation

Salvation (deliverance from sin) is the most important thing in the world, both now and hereafter. If you are not saved, nothing else really matters. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus Christ…

You are here on “Purpose”. Your life and your God-Given Gift is Valuable and Necessary. Welcome to “YOU” because You are Part of our church…….
