'And now why do you delay?  Arise, and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name.' Acts 22:16 (NAS)

After three days of fasting and prayer, Saul arose and was baptized, washing away his sins...calling on the name of Jesus.

There are many examples of baptism throughout the New Testament.  In Acts 8:38, for example, it says that both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water...and Philip baptized him.

In the days of Jesus, they usually baptized in rivers or streams where there was much water:

"John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there; and people were coming and were being baptized..."  John 3:23
