Question: How Do I Convert to Satanism?
Answer: There are no requirements for calling oneself a Satanist. There are a variety of Satanic organizations one can join (such as the Church of Satan), but membership is not needed. Indeed, some groups actively try to weed out those who wish to join primarily because they think membership is important, as Satanism is about controlling one's own life and finding and expressing inner strength and power.
