- Dear Philip,
I believe that the Syriac Orthodox Church would not re-baptize those
who have been baptized in mainstream apostolic churches. The "one
baptism for remission of sins" doctrine, as stated in the Nicene
Creed, has historically favored a more lenient approach towards
accepting the sacrament of baptism received in other churches.
However, all received into the Church undergo chrismation.

Catholic who is interested in being received into the Syriac Orthodox
Church. As I have received the sacraments of initiation as a Roman
Catholic, would I need to repeat either of them to enter the Syriac
Orthodox Church or is only a confession of faith required? Thank you
and God Bless.
