The book of Acts in every instance, the apostles baptized in Jesus name.
Immediately after explaining the plan of salvation in the 38th verse of acts in the 39th verse of the 2nd chapter of Acts, Peter said
“this promise is unto you and your children and to all them that are afar off.”

- Acts 4:12
