Christ commanded it. He instructed His disciples: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Spirit.” Matthew 28:19
It is also a pattern followed by New Testament believers "… many of the Corinthians who heard him believed and were baptized." – Acts 18:8
Finally, it shows our loyalty and obedience to Christ and His Word. “We know that we have come to know Him if we obey His commands.” – 1 John 2:3
When are we to be baptized?
The most detailed example of baptism is found in Acts 8 where Philip told the Eunuch about Christ:
“Then Philip began with that very passage of scripture and told him the good news about Jesus. As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, “Look, here is water. Why shouldn’t I be baptized.” … Then both Philip and the eunuch went down in the water and Philip baptized him.” – Acts 8:35-38
As soon as a person declares their belief in Christ, they can be baptized.
