Every true follower of Jesus Christ is not only qualified but also COMMANDED to baptize those who believe in Jesus Christ and have ACCEPTED Him and decided to follow Him. Jesus commanded His disciples to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Every follower, true disciple, of Jesus Christ is COMMANDED to fulfill the great commission.
Attending a Bible college and becoming an “ordained minister” does NOT qualify a person to baptize others. You need to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Many clergy, pastors, priests, preachers DO NOT KNOW Jesus Christ, neither do they follow Him. They are not qualified to baptize other people.
Any fellow follower of Jesus Christ can baptize a new believer in water, either in a dam, a pool, a stream or any water that is sufficient to fully immerse a person for the washing off of their sins so that out of that water can emerge a NEW MAN, born of water and of the Spirit of the living God.
If you want eternal life you HAVE TO follow and OBEY Jesus Christ. You HAVE TO repent, stop sinning, obey Jesus, show fruit of repentance, holiness and righteousness AND THEN be BAPTIZED IN WATER for the washing off of your sin so that you can be born of water, a NEW CREATURE IN CHRIST and then after that you have to follow Jesus Christ in utter holiness and righteousness, OBEY Him, seek the baptism in the Holy Spirit and He will baptize you in His Spirit. He will guide you and teach you His ways, he will show you the way.
If you refuse to be baptized in water you WILL NOT PROGRESS in your relationship with Jesus Christ. The disobedient will perish. Obey Jesus Christ and FOLLOW Him if you want eternal life.
May Jesus bless you.
