Top 10 on Why Baptism?

Why should one be baptized or immersed into Christ? Why Baptism? With some great articles lately from the Restoration Herald
and the http://christianstandard.com/2011/05/a-biblical-response-to-the-gospel/">Christian Standard

I would just like to add why Baptism?

I. It is part of the Plan. Mark 16:16

II. It is for the remission of sins. Acts 2:38

III. It is where your sins are washed away. Romans 6.

IV. It is a Glorious Event. Matt.28:19-20

V. Part of the Death, burial, and Resurrection of Jesus. Romans 6: 3-4

VI. Pledge 1 Peter 3:21

VII. Conversion Acts 8:34-39

VIII. New Birth John 3:3-5

IX. Commanded to do it. Matt. 28:19-20

X. Where one puts on Jesus. Gal. 3:27

I was 12 years old when I was baptized into Christ for the washing away of my sins ..because I knew I had a sin problem. My preacher, Terry Tanner, at the time shared with me about Jesus and that's when I started my walk. So what's your story? When did you get baptized?
