 No. 1556:

It is important, and biblically correct, to baptize people in the name of Jesus!

Here one sees that a person is baptized in a biblical way, with full immersion.
Called the baptism of believers. But the right thing is, biblical baptism or apostolic baptism as we build our teaching and faith on the faith and teaching of the Apostles and Prophets!

Ap.gj. 38 Peter answered, “Repent and be baptized, every one in the name of Jesus Christ, and be forgiven of your sins. Then you can receive the Holy Spirit as a gift.

39 The promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God will call.
       * JHVH

In God's word - the new testament it says about what name one is baptized four times. Three times it says Jesus' name. Only once does it not say so.
This verse takes on an exaggerated significance. This is from Matthew.

Matthew 28. 19 Go therefore and teach all nations. Baptize them in the name of my Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, and teach them to keep all that I have commanded you.

Here we find the other scriptures, all baptized in the name of Jesus alone.

Already quoted in from Ap.gj. 2 at the top.
Further in Acts 10.
ACTS 10: 44-48 Those of the nations receive the Holy Ghost *

44 While Peter was still speaking, the Holy Ghost fell on all who heard the message.

45 The circumcised believers who were with Peter were amazed that the gift of the Holy Ghost had also been poured out on them from the nations.

46 They heard them speak in tongues, and they exalted God.

47 And Peter said, Can any man deny them the baptism of water, seeing they have received the Holy Ghost?

48 Then he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then they asked them to stay with them for a few days.

Further in Ap.gj. 19.

ACTS 19: 07-13 Paul comes to Ephesus

07 It happened while Apollos was in Corinth: Paul traveled through the upper districts and came to Ephesus. There he met some of the disciples.

08 Then he asked, "Did you receive the Holy Ghost when you came to faith?" They replied, "We have never heard of any Holy Ghost!"

09 Then he asked, "But how were you baptized?" And then they answered him, "With the baptism of John."

10 Then Paul said, "John indeed baptized a baptism of repentance, but he told the people that they must believe in him who came after him, in Christ Jesus."

11 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

12 As Paul laid his hands on them, the Holy Ghost came upon them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied.

13 All the men together were about twelve.

What does this tell us?
Undoubtedly, the first Christian baptized in the name of Jesus, and did all other things in the name of Jesus.

From My Bible Commentaries Colossians 3:17 And let all that ye say and do be done in the name of the Lord Jesus, thanking God the Father through him.

We will do everything in the name of Jesus. Preach in the name of Jesus, pray for the sick in the name of Jesus, baptize people in the name of Jesus and everything else. And yet again Paul mentions with thanks to God the Father. Love a Father so do one all with thanks. A child may be in opposition to his Father, but when he grows up he usually learns to be grateful and one sees everything differently.
(end of quote,)

That one was not baptized in "Baptize them in the name of my Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost." is very clear why.

These are only titles and wordings.
Imagine yourself, King or Prince, are there titles or names?
It is a title, as the Father, the Son, and the Spirit are.
Baptizing in three titles makes no sense. We are baptized into Christ, and rise, to live with him.
We are buried with Christ - leaving all the old behind us.
Rise to live with Christ, forever.

Crazy. 2. 20 Now I have been established with Christ. Then I no longer live for myself, but then I live for Christ. The life I now live in the flesh, I live in faith in the Son of God, who loved me so much that he gave himself for me.
