Bishop Eddie Long was born in Huntersville, North Carolina, to Floyd and Hattie Long and graduated from North Mecklenburg High School in 1972. He married Dabara S. Houston in 1981 and they were divorced after a brief marriage. The couple gave birth to son Edward Long. Houston said she was the victim of "cruel treatment" and was afraid of Long's "violent and vicious temper," according to Fulton County Superior Court records. She and her son "had to flee (the couple's Fairburn home) in order to ensure their safety". Long vigorously denied the allegations and Houston was awarded custody of the then 2 year old son.
Long is the husband of Vanessa Griffin Long. She filed for divorce on 2 December 2011, but withdrew her petition hours later. On the same day she again confirmed her petition for divorce.  He is the father of four children, Eric, Edward, Jared and Taylor.

Bishop Eddie Long graduated from North Mecklenburg High School. He then attended North Carolina Central University in Durham, North Carolina where Long received a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration in 1977. Long donated $1 million to North Carolina Central University in 2008 which will be used to establish a professorship in his honor. Long has been under investigation by US Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), along with five other televangelists' ministries, to determine if the ministers are personally profiting from the religious empires they control that are exempt from US taxes. Long stated he was not worried that his million-dollar gift would bring Grassley's magnifying glass back to him. "I am not doing anything wrong and I'm helping my school" Long said. "I am making (the donation) from my own personal income." Long has said that he has had various real estate ventures and also has royalties from his books. Long is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. Though the degree is unrecognized, Long states that he holds a doctorate in "Pastoral Ministry" from the unaccredited International College of Excellence, a Bible college accredited by an organization that is not recognized by either the Council for Higher Education Accreditation or United States Department of Education, the two institutions responsible for recognizing educational accrediting institutions in the United State.

From 1979 until 1981, Long worked for the Ford Motor Company as a zone manager in parts and services. He then was hired at Honey Well where he worked in the energy management division from 1981 until 1987. In 1986, Long received his M.A. degree in divinity from the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, Georgia, and in 1987, he became the senior pastor of the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, in Lithonia, Georgia. Since his installation, New Birth's membership has multiplied to well over 30,000 members. In 2001, Long began serving as co-chair for the "Hosea Feed the Hungry" Project, and in 2004, he established a mentorship program known as the Longfellows Summer Academy in order to assist in the mental, physical and spiritual development of young men between the ages of twelve and sixteen. In 2006, Long earned his Ph.D. in pastoral ministry from the International College of Excellence in Tampa, Florida.
