There is only "one baptism" (Eph 4:5).  Why do today's Christians believe A MAN (Matt 28:19) can baptize them better than JESUS (John 1:33)?

Update:

@MALCOLM

JESUS WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU AFTER HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM (ACTS 2:2-4) WHO DREW (JOHN 6:44) PEOPLE TO THE CHURCH

IN THOSE "CONVERSIONS."

WHY DO YOU (((THINK))) I'M HERE?

BUT HE WILL "BRING ALL THINGS TO YOUR REMEMBRANCE WHAT SOEVER HE'S TOLD YOU" (JOHN 14:26)  LIKE HE DID PETER (ACTS 11:15-16)

THAT'S WHAT I'M HERE FOR (HEBREWS 13:16).

Update 2:

@HON

THERE IS JUST "ONE BAPTISM" (PH 4:5) THAT JESUS DOES "WITH THE HOLY GHOST" (JOHN 1:33)

WHY DOES HE NEED OUR HELP WHEN "AS FOR GOD, HIS WAY IS PERFECT" (PSALM 18:30)?

Update 3:

@DC

JESUS SAVES (ISAIAH 43:11) NOT NO DAMNED SO CALLED "CATHOLIC CHURCH" (ACTS 17:23-25)

    Because Jesus personally founded only one Church ... the Holy Catholic Church ... for the purpose of our salvation and he endowed that Church with all that the faithful would ever need, until the end of time.

    Water baptism is the symbol God has set for our covenant with Him. It is a symbol of new birth or a change of heart and direction. This is why John the baptist taught the need for repentance before baptism. Jesus Himself was baptized because even though He was perfect, He was required to make the covenant with the Father. Our relationship with the Father is a covenant one. As we faithfully stay in the covenant and strive to follow Christ, He will protect and save us.

    The covenant symbolized by water baptism comes before the Holy Ghost. As we faithfully follow Christ, the Holy Ghost leads us, teaches us and purifies us. This is what it means to be born again or born of the spirit. It is true that the revelatory gift of the Holy Ghost is essential but it does not eliminate the need for the other ordinances of the gospel.
