Bishop Eddie Long Dies At The Age Of 63

It has been officially announced and confirmed that Bishop Eddie Long, head of Georgia-based megachurch has passed away at the age of 63. The church where Eddie presided, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church along with his wife First Lady Elder Vanessa Long confirmed his death as he was battling an aggressive form of cancer.

A statement first received by Atlanta Journal-Constitution said:

“New Birth Missionary Baptist Church celebrates the life and legacy of Bishop Eddie L. Long who is now spiritually healed and home with the Lord. Bishop Long, Senior Pastor of New Birth, transitioned from this life early Sunday morning after a gallant private fight with an aggressive form of cancer. As a man of God with unyielding faith, Bishop Long maintained his commitment to our Heavenly Father as he proclaimed that cancer would not kill his faith nor his spirit. First Lady Elder Vanessa Long, Bishop Long’s wife of 27 years offered the following. ‘I am confident through my belief in God that my husband is now resting in a better place. Although his transition leaves a void for those of us who loved him dearly, we can celebrate and be happy for him, knowing he’s at peace.’”

Rumors of his illness had been going on for a number of months and just recently Long attended one of his services on Oct. 9, 2016, after just coming out of the hospital, and spoke to his church advising that he was healed. This was just in time for his Pastoral Anniversary Service. He then later has a healing service for those currently in physical pain.

Close friends and loved ones have been deeply saddened by Eddie Long’s passing:
