1024 Project

The 1024 Project is a collaboration of Christian leaders, based on Hebrews 10:24 – “and let us consider ways to stimulate one another to love and good deeds.” One way we can accomplish this mandate is by working together to provide encouraging and edifying resources on issues that arise in the lives of individual believers and in corporate church life.

The 1024 Project is a clearinghouse of teaching, resources and information from likeminded leaders of Biblical churches, who are committed to Two Key Distinctives. Pastor Daniel Goepfrich is a Founding Member and contributor to the 1024 Project.

“Don’t judge me!” In our age of tolerance, this statement has become a mantra used to stifle moral pronouncements and avoid responsibility for behavior. Some Christians might even say this to mean, “Don’t tell me how to live; I’m under grace!” or accuse those who confront their behavior of being ungracious. Grace is also used [...]

Dr. Luther Smith – www.theurbantheologiansite.wordpress.com/ During my time, counseling from a Biblical worldview, I have heard many people say something similar to this statement: “As long as a counselor is a Christian, and is using the word of God, what difference does it make what approach they use?” Although it is understandable why one would express [...]

Dr. Christopher Cone – www.drcone.com A theological system ought to be the product of exegetical study of Scripture, not a preface to exegetical work. Hermeneutical principles are first observed in the Scriptures themselves, even in a cursory and casual reading. Those principles are then applied in actual study of the text in the exegetical process. [...]

by George Gunn – A key distinction between Israel and the Church involves Sabbath observance. Neglect in distinguishing between Israel and the Church has caused great confusion over the significance of the Sabbath. Traditional supersessionist thinking has caused many Christians view Sunday as the “Christian Sabbath,” and that by going to church on Sunday, one [...]
