In Orthodox circles the term convert is often used to describe someone who had:

  1. no religious beliefs (i.e., atheism)
  2. non-Christian religious beliefs (e.g., Muslim, Buddhist)
  3. non-Orthodox or heterodox Christian beliefs (e.g. Roman Catholic, Protestant)

and decided to become a Orthodox Christian. In the later case, the individual may be received in the Church by chrismation. In the two former cases, individuals would be received by baptism.
