Baptism by immersion in water by one having authority is the first saving ordinance of the gospel and is necessary for an individual to become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and to receive eternal salvation. All who seek eternal life must follow the example of the Saviour by being baptized and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Mark 16:16 “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”
