Bishop Eddie Long the senior pastor of New Birth Baptist Church in Atlanta Georgia has transitioned.
Today it is with great sadness I announce that our bishop has transitioned,” Bishop Christopher C. Smith said.
“He’s no longer in pain,” Smith continues. “He’s no longer dealing with the complications that he had to deal with.”
A statement released by the church this morning confirms Long died early Sunday morning after “a gallant private fight with an aggressive form of cancer.”
Let’s keep Bishop Long immediate family and his church family worldwide in our prayers.
