Here is an excerpt from St. Justin the Martyr speaking to a jew named Trypho, about the one water baptism.  

St. Justin the Martyr Dialogue with Trypho the jew 155 AD:  It is necessary to hasten to learn in what way forgiveness of sins and a hope of the inheritance of the promised good things may be yours.  There is no other way than this: acknowledge Christ, be washed in the washing announced by Isaias [Isaias 58:11-Baptism] for the forgiveness of sins; and henceforth live sinlessly.  William Jurgens, The Faith of the Early Fathers, Vol. I; 135a.  

Prophecy of Isaias 58:11  And the Lord will give thee rest continually, and will fill thy soul with brightness, and deliver thy bones, and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a fountain of water whose waters shall not fail.
