Men and women were baptized. Infants were not baptized. Infants cannot believe (Acts 8:12).

Acts 16:25-34

The Philippian jailer (and his household) believed and was immediately baptized.

Acts 18:8

Crispus and many other Corinthians heard, believed, and were baptized.

Acts 19:1-7

Paul baptized about twelve men who had been John's disciples.

As with these men, a person who has been baptized with a baptism other than Jesus Christ's must be properly baptized to be saved.
