16th Years of Ministry



Still Standing on Christ”

Matthew 16:18-19 “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. v19. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

The Lord has already given our Pastor Matthew Pettus Jr. and First Lady Mattie Pettus a vision for our ministry that promotes victorious living, physical and spiritual healing, soul saving salvation and manifested life changing deliverance.  Come and see what the Lord is doing.


It is good to reflect on what the Lord has done over the years...some photos below

Our Military members are men and women of God giving their lives in service to our country.  I served 22 ½ years in the U.S. Navy Submarine Force and I understand what it takes to serve.  Prayer is powerful and that's something we all can do.  Help me lift up our Military and their families continually in prayer.  That we may ask for God’s grace and mercy upon them all.


Yours in Christ Jesus, Pastor Pettus

Retired Senior Chief U.S. Navy

New Life Body of Christ Christian Church is dedicated to praying for our servicemen and women and their families. We feel that it is important for the the body of Christ as a whole to continually support our military in everyway that we possibly can.


I am very proud of the City of Kingsland, Georgia, for the way we honor our military and their families. I will do all that I can do in helping and assisting our military and their families. Without them we could not enjoy the liberties of living safely and the freedom to pursuit life as known it and dream it to be. May God bless our Military…and our Nation.






Touching lives in the

We are concerned about our brothers and sisters of the Philippines.   Our Sister Church in the Philippines under Pastor Jason Achuela and First Lady Achuela in Samar.  They have rebuilt the church and are blessing the community greatly.  We need your help to bring some needed supplies, support and care to the people of God labouring in the Kingdom of God in Jesus name.
