- Mikveh (immersion, baptism) should be performed for new believers as a sign of their trust in Yeshua as Messiah.
- It may also be performed for consecrants to the Messianic Jewish lifestyle and community; those who wish to re-affirm the Jewish/Hebrew roots of their faith; or those who are processing through to Simcha ("Jewish Conversion"). In any Mikvah they should take a Hebrew name and confess their place as a part of the commonwealth of Israel.
- Further, a private Mikveh (without an official) may be performed by those who view themselves as being in need of the ceremonial cleansing specifically ordained in the Torah.
In any public Mikveh it is not necessary, nor Scripturally mandated, for the official to enter the water with the consecrant. In fact, it is best if the consecrant proceeds unaided and the official acts as the official witness of the event.
