New Birth Missionary Baptist Church Expands

Atlanta (WAOK) Church attendees Sunday at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church heard some interesting news. Bishop Eddie Long on Sunday announced the start of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Birmingham and also said New Birth will be expanding to Denver as well. The two locations will become satellite extensions of New Birth in Lithonia. Both churches are expected to open by 2012.

Bishop Long also said the Lithonia megachurch recently received its certified audit back from 2010 and 2009. Long said that the church passed the audit.

Finally parishioners financially able were asked to make larger donations ($500 to $1,000) as a seed for the ministry. Long said the money would be used to keep up operating expenses over the summer months.
