Baptism in the Book of Mormon

The Book of Mormon is a record of people being converted to Christ. It contains many accounts of people who were taught faith in Christ and repentance of sins which was followed by baptism.

What’s the point?

I found it fun to look at individual people and their baptismal experience. I can relate to them and their conversion. The people in the Book of Mormon become real when we can relate to and learn from them better.

Each baptism of an individual is included in the account by Mormon for specific reasons. This helps us learn more about what Mormon teaches about Christ.


Here is a list of all the individuals who we read about their baptism. Baptisms of groups of people are not included here. 12 of these individuals were the disciples chosen by Christ in the Americas. A few others are recorded as well.
