In the winter before His death Jesus Christ brought His disciples to Caesarea Philippi where He revealed to His disciples for the first time that He was indeed the Jewish Messiah. The city of Caesarea Philippi, also known as ancient Paneas was situated way in the north about 30 miles past the Sea of Galilee on a terrace at the foot of Mount Hermon on its southern slope, about 1150 feet above sea level. The area had an unusually beautiful setting, it was very lush and full of life and it has always been one of the main sources of the Jordan River, Josephus saying that it was the chief source. The ancient Canaanites built a sanctuary to Baal at Paneas, the Greeks and Romans both built sanctuaries there because of the cave of Pan. Inside the cave was a seemingly bottomless pit with an unlimited quantity of water which made the pagans marvel.
Baptism gives the faithful a parallel to Jesus's death for man. Like His resurrection, they rise from the waters after baptism to journey in their new life (Romans 6:4). After this rebirth as God's Children, believers wish to please him.
Jesus lived as a man, He was baptized to fulfill father's will and to be recognized as God's Son. Jesus baptism symbolizes righteousness and faith. Jesus shows his humility. He undergoes steps to become a righteous even he is already righteous man. A water immersion is a sign that Jesus is the one and only man who can take away our sins through his death on the cross. Jesus follow everything what father's commanded him. As Christian believers ,we should follow Christ and do the ministry He entrusted us.

The significance of Jesus by calling his disciples are important.
Because it shows that Peter, Philip, Andrew, and Nathanial were "following" Jesus. They had already been followed Jesus for some time. We can assume that since James and John were business partners with Peter and Andrew, also deeply spiritual men, they believed what Peter and Andrew said about Jesus. The significance here is Jesus ordered/called the disciples by their name. The first six disciples, then, were Peter, Andrew, James, John, Philip, and Bartholomew.
