Catholic baptism

1)Does the Coptic church recognize the baptism of the Catholic Church?
2) If a Catholic wants to join the Coptic Orthodox Church do they have to be baptized again?


  • 1. Yes. The Catholic Church is an Apostolic, Trinitarian Church. We recognize their baptism. We only require a declaration of faith and a charismation (confirmation) of their faith in the Coptic Church.
    2. No. In the past, they were (re)baptized but this is not the case any more.
