The baptism by immersion is to be done as Jesus commanded and this is how the Apostles baptized. Certainly the Apostles would NOT go against the words of the Saviour, Jesus Christ, no matter what the modern Church is proclaiming.
Whatever, believers should and must obey the words of God, which is Jesus also, rather than to obey the Apostles. (IF... they were wrong).
Although there is only ONE name by whom we get saved, the name of Jesus, if it wasn't for the Father we wouldn't have had Jesus to save us. And if it was not for the Holy Ghost we would never be able to walk in obedience unto God's word.
The Holy Spirit is the power by which an individual comes to Christ.
GOD, the Father and the SON and the HOLY GHOST are INSEPARABLE. THE THREE ARE ONE!!
Then, wherever the apostles wrote "to be baptized in the name of Jesus" they referred to baptism in the AUTHORITY of Jesus Christ or on His command, according to Matthew 28:19, which reads: "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."
This would be similar as a servant of the palace would give a command in the NAME OF THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND, for example, which means according to the requirements of the QUEEN.
Even if the Apostles were handling according to their own teaching (which they never did), we should adhere more to the words spoken by Jesus. Or do you think that Christ made an error and the Apostles would teach differently? NO WAY!
ALLOW THE SPIRIT OF THE ALMIGHTY RULE YOUR LIFE AND OPEN YOUR EYES FOR HIS TRUTH.
Jesus never fails and He would never be able to lead us astray concerning the manner in which we should be baptized. God's word is CLEAR to what Jesus commanded. I am not willing nor going to neglect the words of my Saviour or hold Him as making errors, or as a deceiver concerning the baptism in water. NO WAY!
I am sure that you didn't land here by accident.
God has His plan, but we have to listen! I have said all what is needed.
It is up to you how you're going to respond. Whatever Jesus has spoken has always been with the approval of God, the Father. He didn't do a thing unless He heard from the Father.
Mankind errs but JESUS NEVER FAILS.
I have spoken according to God's word.
I follow God, NOT words of man.
You do what you want to do and take the responsibility for your decision.
