Go therefore and (T)make disciples of (U)all the nations, (V)baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, (W)I am with you [f]always, even to (X)the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20)

After the people become disciples then they are to be taught the beautiful things about the Christian walk. Baptism us essential in order to be saved!
