The Bible teaches that we should be baptized in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. We believe in water baptism because Jesus himself modeled it for us. In the book of Luke, it says, "When all the people were baptized, Jesus was baptized too. As he was praying, heaven was opened." Luke 3:21
