Yes. This is a wonderful, important (1 Cor. 15:12-19) part of the Christian faith that the apostle Paul writes about in 1 Corinthians 15. Two of the relevant parts of that chapter are:

In 1 Corinthians 15:23 Paul says that Christ is the first of those to be raised: his resurrection is the forerunner, the foretaste, the preview of everyone else’s resurrection.

In 1 Corinthians 15:49 Paul says that Christians will ‘bear the image of the man of heaven’ — i.e., when they’re raised they’ll be like the Lord Jesus — just as at the moment they bear ‘the image of the man of dust’ (i.e., now we are mortal, corruptible, made of dust, like Adam: cf. Gen. 2:7).
