So I keep thinking about this: How will I be received into Orthodoxy? I know that typically it is just Chrismation when a RC becomes Orthodox. I also know St. Mark of Ephesus spoke against the rebaptism of RC's who become Orthodox. However, Kallistos Ware said in "The Orthodox Church" that triple immersion is key...so which method will I undergo?
Also, does Chrismation cleanse you of sin, or would I have to confess before Communing for the first time in the Orthodox Church?
You'd need to speak with your priest as it can vary.
I'm converting from Southern Baptist and attend a Greek church. I was told that I didn't need to be rebaptized since I was immersed in the name of the Trinity, but I will need to do a non-sacramental confession first. It was explained that Chrismation is like baptism without water, conferring the Holy Spirit and absolution.
