3 Nephi 11:21–22, 12:1, 19:4

And the Lord said unto him:

“I give unto you power
that ye shall baptize this people
when I am again ascended into heaven.”

And again the Lord called others, and said unto them likewise; and he gave unto them power to baptize.

Now the number of them who had been called, and received power and authority to baptize, was twelve.

Behold, Nephi and his brother whom he had raised from the dead, whose name was Timothy, and also his son, whose name was Jonas, and also Mathoni, and Mathonihah, his brother, and Kumen, and Kumenonhi , and Jeremiah, and Shemnon, and Jonas, and Zedekiah, and Isaiah —now these were the names of the disciples whom Jesus had chosen.
