All About Orthodox Baptisms



Can an adult or child be baptized twice?


No, a person may not be baptized twice.

A person can only be baptized once into the Orthodox faith. Baptism is a sacrament and can only be done once. Once baptized, the child is part of the Orthodox faith and a second baptism is not able to be performed. A priest in a different parish from the original baptizing parish would not be able to perform a baptism if the child is already a member of the Orthodox faith.
