We are saved by grace through faith. Always have been, always will be. Jesus didn’t come to change the MEANS of salvation by adding baptism as a requirement not required by those before.the bible states, baptism now saves you. YOU said no it does not and then gave me carm.
Baptism, all throughout scripture was FOR the saved, never done to be saved. Always for those that had already repented and confessed Christ. For the saved.
