    What ever Jesus did we were to follow his steps closely as written. Reference Bible
    1Pe 2:21 In fact, to this [course] YOU were called, because even Christ suffered for YOU, leaving YOU a model for YOU to follow his steps closely
    He was baptized by John the Baptist,  but he was without sin perfect.
    So he did it for us as example to follow.

    According to I Peter 3:19-21 the Holy Spirit (Jesus) said through Peter "By whom also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison, (v20) Who at one time were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was preparing, in which few, that is, eight souls, were saved by water; (v21) THE LIKE FIGURE unto which even baptism DOTH ALSO NOW SAVE US (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), by the resurrection of Jesus Christ,"   Well, if Jesus said it, who are we to argue?

    As Kiss and Tales said, Jesus did so as an example for us to follow.  John didn't feel worthy to baptize Jesus but Jesus said in Matthew 3:15 "...Permit it to be so now; for thus it becometh us TO FULFILL ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS.  Then he consented to him."

    Yes, Jesus recommended that we be baptized in the name of The Father, and of The Son and of The Holy Ghost:... Being baptized is symbolic of dying to sin and being born again into His righteousness by immersion in water. As a person is baptized by immersion in water the who performs the ritual should recite the Words that Jesus stated in the book of Matthew 28: 19-20.

    Water is a symbol of knowledge and comes in three forms, solid or ice, liquid and vapor.  Those three types of water represent three types of knowledge, vapor is the thought, water is the expression or spoken words and ice is the manifestation of the other 2.  In that light, the actual baptism man must obtain for salvation is to be anointed with a general vision of all things past and future which "the comforter" (John 14:26) will bring to our remembrance once wed go through the metamorphosis called "new birth" and we cease to seek fleshly pleasures.

    Simple answer is no you don't.
    Baptism does have a purpose but it isn't essential for salvation. Baptism is  a symbol of the fact that the old self is now dead and gone. It is also the first step in a life of obedience to Christ and as such is a declaration to the rest of the world.
    The word comes from the Greek term "Baptiso" meaning literally "to be immersed" and that's what happens, when we get baptized (in water or in the spirit) we literally get immersed in him.
    This is a simplified version and I wrote a hub about it a while back that would be worth a visit as I touched on what some of the mainstream groups believe about it.
    Hope this helps
