Baptism: a word derived from Greek baptizo: "immersing" 
Baptizing is responding to the call of God to Repent and wash away our sins. It is not something you just do, or can be forced to do;  but it is something that happens to you as you surrender: repent, then walk into that water to be submerged by one in the name of Jesus Christ. Only this way you are Born Again.  You first believe that which you read, then you feel repentance, then you feel compelled to baptize  - and you do it by your own will. 
    Baptism is also referred to as:  Baptism of repentance: repenting, then baptizing   - because one must repent before one can 'be baptized' when one surrenders to God through this ritual we call 'Baptism'.  
Metaphorically, repenting is the contract you must read and accept and baptism is the signature you must draw to bind the agreement between you and God.



Atonement:
Jesus' death on the cross is no atonement for sin! Atonement for sin is 'individual repentance' completed with baptism and the reception of the Holy Ghost.  Imagine that Jesus' death wold literally be atonement for sin!  Why then would we need repentance and baptism, while our sins were already be forgiven by Jesus' death on the cross? This quote is a METAHPHOR.  His death on the cross completed the process during which he gave us the means to find salvation:- faith, repentance, baptism, but was and is no atonement for any sins!  Do not be fooled by smooth talking fake preachers who have anything in mind but to win you for the kingdom of heaven.

For absolute clarity:
Repentance: turn from your sins (everything Jesus specifies as 'sin' and then embrace the teachings of Jesus). This is repenting.
Baptize: now you have repented, God shall was away your sins as you are submerged into the water, This is baptizing.

After we have baptized, we must ask God for the Holy Ghost, in the name of Christ: for then we shall surely receive it.
LUK  11: 13  If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? 

Baptism is also called a sacrifice: because, when we baptizing, we sacrifice our liberty to undertake any of the actions prohibited by Jesus Christ., having just washed away all sins accounted to us for those transgressions of the past.

Do not believe that there are two baptisms for us: we are to baptize with water, in order to become Holy.  Only the Apostles were baptized with fire: and nobody else.  Only Jesus received the Holy Ghost descending from heaven as a dove: and nobody else.

Also, those that are really called, are granted wisdom and understanding by God, so they understand that they must first get married, then baptize; for else they are in serious danger of committing fornication as they have known the flesh before and shall naturally desire it   - they would build their house upon sand, though Christ teaches them to build their house upon a Rock. MAT  7: 21 

Baptism is the first of the two sacraments given to us by Christ. 
We must read the Gospel, understand it, accept it, repent truly in heart then, through our own will, walk in to the Baptism and baptize into the church of Christ.   Baptism without repentance is no Baptism but merely a quick dip  - and many are so baptized. These are the cold, or at best lukewarm, with a 'Christian Tag': not Christians.

JOH  3: 3  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 
JOH  3: 4  Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? 
JOH  3: 5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 
JOH  3: 6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 
JOH  3: 7  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 

MAT  18: 3  And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 
JOH  3: 3  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 
JOH  3: 7  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 
PE1  1: 23  Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 

Matt.18:3-4 - And said, Verily I (Jesus) say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (4) Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven (humble your self through repentance and baptism).

Once we have accepted the Gospel and Christ and have surrendered our selves to him, we must Baptize.
Baptism is know as 'To be Born Again'; to be a new person as the old one is dead and the new one is born.
A wise one whom builds his house upon a rock, will first get married, trying his partner thoroughly with much prayer, at least for one year, perhaps longer, then take the baptism. For, after this, no fornication may take place.

Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. (note that they so received it, but that we must pray for the Holy Ghost, so that it is given to us, says Christ).

Then Jesus came from Galilee to John to be baptized by him in the Jordan River.
3:14 But John tried to prevent him, saying, I need to be baptized by you, and yet you come to me?  So Jesus replied to him, Let it happen now, for it is right for us to fulfil all righteousness. Then John yielded to him.  After Jesus was baptized, just as he was coming up out of the water, the heavens opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming on him. And a voice from heaven said, This is my one dear Son; in him I take great delight.
Note: we don't read of multiple baptisms, but one, there is only one 'true' baptism.
If you had a fake one, where your parents took you to the baptism, then it does not count as being baptized, for you need to repent, then baptize  - all through your own will.

So be not fooled by the false preachers and so-called followers/christians whom tell you that you need not baptize. Jesus was baptized, and so who on earth are you? Through faith you are saved; and not faith in your self, your own wisdom, but by faith in what Jesus teaches you.

After the baptism you are a Holy person, a Christian: nothing else makes one Holy or Christian.
 

Metaphors used:
MAT 18: 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
JOH 3: 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
JOH 3: 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
PE1 1: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
Here we read again that 'Grace' 'Word of God' 'Incorruptable Seed' are all used as Metaphor to denote Christ and his gift to us: baptism for the remission of sin.

Metaphors used:
JOH 3: 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
JOH 3: 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
JOH 3: 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
JOH 3: 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
JOH 3: 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Born again of water and the sprit means: you being born again, not in the flesh but in the spirit. So, not of the flesh, but of the spirit. It does not refer to the Holy Ghost, which we receive through praying for it, for born again we are through water: as Jesus said. But, as we read, we receive the Holy Ghost through prayer after our baptism. Some may believe that receiving the Holy Ghost after our baptism is another form of 'Born Again', referring to born again of the spirit: but this is not so.  The gift of the Holy Ghost is no more than what it's referred to be in the book of Acts: a gift from Christ to the Born Again Christian: the baptized person.
 

Are You Baptized?
   a)  - If anyone has taken you to a place and baptized you there or had you baptized by another, you are not baptized.
Why?  Because you are called to Repent en then Baptize in to the Church of Christ.  As a very little child you could not even repent for your sins, for you did not understand the matter and so you were not baptized.

  b)  - If you did not understand the Gospel or did not even read it before you baptized, or if you did not understand 'Repentance' and you then  baptized (let us so call it) you did the act of going in to the water but you were not baptized for you did not understood: believe, repent, baptize.  God can forgive you, for you were a fool or you were mislead by others.
    If now you understand and you can actually 'feel' repentance, then you are ready to baptize.

  c)  - If you were baptized by any person who did not put you under the water ( baptize) and then lifted you out of the water again, you are not baptized either; for you are called to 'Repent' and  'Baptize' in the name of Jesus Christ.

In any of the above cases you can baptize again and, this time, as you really understand what you are doing, you shall be baptized.
 

Who Can Baptize:
Any Believer who has repented and has been baptized to become a Christian can baptize a believer; for now they also are holy (unlike the ministers of men) and are sound in the eyes of God.  Were you ever baptized by a filth who was not at all baptized, but did you have no knowledge thereof, well, you are then still baptized, for you walked in to the baptism by your own choice and, knowing God through his dealings in the bible, God will not blame you for it, for you did not have the knowledge that the one baptizing you was a rogue.  But then, I personally very much believe that a unbeliever also can baptize a believer, be there nobody else to execute this for the believer.

How To Baptize:
One can be baptized in any water, anywhere and at any time.  This because it is only written to baptize in water. 
One can be baptized in the name of jesus Christ, as it is written and has been done in the days of Jesus, but if others use the line 'In the name of the father, and the son, and the holy ghost' then that is also okay, because if the three are one then either is okay.  But it is always better to hold on to that which is taught in the bible and to follow it exactly  - remember that the lukewarm have no chance with God.
     The quote:  the son is like the father, where Jesus explains that he is like God, can be compared to the authority of a Deputy Judge compared to that of a judge: to us, both have equal power,  yet one is the greater power.

Baptizing Children:
Children  should not be baptized as when a child was brought to Jesus he did not baptize them, as it would surely contradict his doctrine,  but he blessed them: see  Matt.18:3-4. Children are as we should become, after the Baptism  - so why baptize them?  The Holy among us should Bless Them, as Jesus did. 

Many Christians pointed at this, so then the churches invented the name  'Christening' to fool those who are not at all called by God but by man,  to bind as many fools as soon as possible to their church.  Paedobaptism is not from Christ.
Be ye children of your God and not the children on men!

Hebrews 10:12
But when this man (Jesus) had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God. 
( That sacrifice is 'Baptism'.)

Hebrews 10:26 
If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth (Baptism after repentance), no sacrifice for sins is left...

The only forgiveness for sins after baptism is the forgiveness for accidental transgressions (which are not sins)  - not fornication! but sins like sudden waves of unjustifiable hatred (hate for evil is justifiable as we must hate evil to love good), thoughtless deceit, accidental lies told to the harm of others, accidental, thoughtless theft etc.  For this our merciful God tells us how to find forgiveness.  Sacrifice to God is a contrite heart!  We read this clearly and it is perfect!  He only, can see if you regret your deed, for then your heart is contrite and only he can see it!
Psa. 51:17  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

HEB  10: 26  For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 
HEB  10: 27  But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. 

Note: 'knowledge of the truth' does not denote you having read the Gospel and knowingly doing wrong, but it refers to you having baptized and wilfully sinning afterwards. There is only one sacrifice for sin in the New Testament: repntance and baptism   -  nothing else. Through baptizing, you sacrifice your freedom: form then on you agree not to wilfully do that which God forbids.

Note: before we have baptized, during our repentance, we should start to ask for the Holy Ghost. We pray for this and, after we baptize, we must then receive it.
LUK 11: 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask 
him? 
ACT 2: 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift 
of the Holy Ghost. 
ACT 10: 45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift 
of the Holy Ghost. 

Mark 1:15 (Jesus) And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.  

It is a fable from deceitful conmen, whom claimed they had received it, that you, or some kind of specially chosen, should speak in tongues (suddenly speak various laguages, previously unknown to you) after your baptism: this was only granted to the Apostles, so that they could preach the Gospel to all the peole.   Read the full explanation on this page.
 
 


...And The Gates Of Hell Shall Not Prevail Against It
Through the ages Catholics and other Nicolatians tried to defy the above quotation by Jesus, oppressing and murdering many, deceiving and misleading many more, but they have not and shall not prevail against 'His Church'.
