“I am the Light of the World”

This past weekend at Eastbrook, we continued our celebration of the resurrection of Jesus through our preaching series, “I AM: Seven Identity Markers of Jesus,” drawn from the Gospel of John. This week I continued the series by exploring Jesus’ statement, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12).

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.
