The Bible Says , "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. . ." (Acts 2:38). There is therefore no question as to whether or not you should be baptized. Baptism is an outward sign of your new found faith in Christ following the repentance of sins. It doesn't save you. Christ did! The questions are how, when, and by whom should you be baptized?

How? It is clear from scripture that those who were baptized, were fully immersed in water. Here's one reason why:  "And John was also baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there..." (John 3:23). If John was merely sprinkling believers, he would have only needed a cup full of water. The word baptise in Greek literally means "to submerge." If you are going to a church that sprinkles, that's okay. God knows the attitude of your heart.

When? The Philippian jailer and his family were baptized at midnight, as soon as they believed. So what are you waiting for? Do it at church, at a lake, in a river, a creek, a pool, or even a bathtub! 

By Whom? It is clear from Scripture that any other believers had the privilege, but check with your pastor, he would be overjoyed and honored to be the one who baptises you.
