In Orthodox circles the term '''''convert''Conversion''' is often used the process by which a person decides to describe someone who had:become Orthodox, as opposed to being brought up in the Orthodox faith from childhood.
# A '''convert''', someone who has undergone conversion, may have any non-Orthodox background, including no religious beliefs (i.e., atheism)# , non-Christian religious beliefs (e.g., [[Islam|Muslim]], Buddhist)# , or non-Orthodox or heterodox Christian beliefs (e.g. [[Roman Catholic Church|Roman Catholic]], [[Protestantism|Protestant]]).
and decided to become a Orthodox Christian. In the later latter case, the individual may be received in into the Church by the [[sacrament]] of [[chrismation]], as long as the person has already had a [[baptism]] using the [[Holy Trinity|Trinitarian]] formula ("In the name of the Father, and of the [[Jesus|Son]], and of the [[Holy Spirit]]"). In the two former cases, individuals would be received by [[the sacrament of baptism]], then chrismated.
