Joseph Ton: The 1955 Congress marks the moment when the sacred and essential principles of Baptist faith began to be renounced

Romania Evanghelica

„The Baptist Union was formed relatively late-in 192o–and from that date until 1955 preserved the character of all other Baptist Unions, namely that of a representative and consultative organ for mutual assistance.

After the Union’s Congress, held in the autumn of 1955, this Union changed its fundamental character, although its Constitution remained the same as before. The 1955 Congress marks the moment when the sacred and essential principles of Baptist faith began to be renounced.

In 1954 the Ministry of Cults issued a Regularization of Religious Services, which aimed at reducing the number of services and other church activities.

The Regularization was imposed, according to a new principle, foreign to our denomination and belief.”
