I have been raised a United Methodist since birth up to now... I was baptized as an infant as a protestant (sprinkling). My local Orthodox Parish is Russian juristiction (not sure if this makes a difference here or not) basically my question is will the church see my original baptism as valid or I be baptized again? and if not is there something I will need as proof that I was in fact baptized?

Here are just a few of the threads already in existence that will address your question. I suggest that you look at these and continue asking your questions in these threads rather than start a new one. (this thread will be closed after this post so as to avoid more repetition than is already out there).
