Church of England Wants To Manufacture Disciples Too - Did He Go to Fuller Seminary with Bivens, Valleskey, Kelm, and Werning?

Waldo Werning ranked in the Who's Who in Church Growth
in C. Peter Wagner's book.

Archbishop of Canterbury Welby:
"I want to start by saying just two simple sentences about the Church. First, the church exists to worship God in Jesus Christ.

Second, the Church exists to make new disciples of Jesus Christ. Everything else is decoration. Some of it may be very necessary, useful, or wonderful decoration -- but it's decoration.
When I talk about making disciples as we go through, of course I'm not only talking about words; I'm also talking about actions, and we'll come back to that in a little while."

"Making disciples" is the hallmark of the Church Growth Movement. One reason WELS and Missouri abandoned the KJV for the NIV is the switch from teaching (or discipling) all nations in the Great Commission to "make disciples of all nations."
