“I am the Resurrection and the Life”

This past weekend at Eastbrook, we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus and began a new preaching series, “I AM: Seven Identity Markers of Jesus,” drawn from the Gospel of John. This week I began the series with Jesus’ profound and shocking statement, “I am the resurrection and the life” (John 11:25).

You can find the message outline and video below. You can access the entire series here. Join us for weekend worship in-person or remotely via Eastbrook at Home.
