During His visit to the Ancient Americas* Jesus Christ taught the people about the purpose of baptism and how to properly administer it. He then ordained His chosen leaders, giving them the
priesthood authority to do so.
 
     
  I give unto you power
that ye shall baptize
this people when I am
again ascended into
Heaven. ( 3rd Nephi 11:21 )
 
     
  This is how thou shalt baptize.  
 

3rd Nephi 11:22-27

. . . On this wise shall ye Baptize ;
and there shall be no disputations among you. Verily I say unto you, that whoso repenteth of his sins through your words, and desireth to be Baptized in My name,
. . . – Behold, ye shall go down and stand in the water, and in My name shall ye Baptize them. And now behold, these are the words which ye shall say, calling them by name saying : Having authority given me of Jesus Christ, I Baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. And then shall ye immerse them in the water, and come forth again out of the water.
