This study aims to examine the sacraments in the Macedonian Orthodox Church. After the Macedonian Orthodox Church was established as a bishopric in the city of Justiniana Prima in the fourth century, it has survived to the present day as a continuation of the Archdiocese of Ohrid, which was established in the twelfth century. However, the autocephaly of the Macedonian Orthodox Church was a controversial issue until 2022 although the independent State of North Macedonia had already been established. Today, the Macedonian Orthodox Church has declared its autocephaly and carries out its activities independently, without being attached to any place. The Macedonian Orthodox Church accepts seven sacraments. These are: Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation, Confession of Sin, Marriage, Priest Consecration, Lubrication of the Sick.
