The proper mode of Baptism is by Immersion. This is illustrated by the account of Jesus Christ ‛s baptism. Jesus had traveled a great distance to Jordan where there was much water. Next we read that after He was baptized He “ went up straightway up out of the water ” indicating that He was immersed under the water. ( see Matt. 3:13-16 )  
     
  The very word Baptize came from the Greek word
“ Baptizo ” meaning, literally, to bury or immerse.
 
     
  And John also was baptizing in
AEnon near to Salim, because there was much water there : and they came, and were baptized.
 
John 3:23
     
  If all you need for baptism is a cupful of water,
why go where there is much water ?
( see Acts 8:36-39 ; Romans 6:3-6 )
