How To Become An Orthodox Christian

1. Visit a Local Church

Look for an Orthodox parish near you. Start attending the Divine Liturgy, meet the priest, and familiarize yourself with the other parishioners. Use our Parish Finder tool, and we'll help you find a local Orthodox church.

2. Become A Catechumen

Learn about the Orthodox Christian faith. Ask your priest about going through the catechism process. What must one believe as an Orthodox Christian? Learn, here (🚧), about the dogmas, doctrines, canons, councils, and other traditions of the Church.

3. “Be Baptized” (Acts 2:38)

Receive the sacrament of baptism, instituted by Christ, by which we enter into His Church and Body. After catechism, you will be baptized (🚧) and confirmed (🚧). In the Book of Acts, we learn that Saint Peter commanded, according to the revelation of God, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
