" For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ." ( Galatians 3:27 ESV
Being baptized is a ritual that shifts boundaries. It symbolizes dying to self and living a new life in Christ Jesus. It is not an isolated event. People are always incorporated into the community of believers by being baptized That is why families were baptized together in the New Testament. But being baptized alone doesn't save you. But it is a part of your salvation experience in that it is obedience to the Lord's command.
