2 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him“. Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God“.

3 Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?“. Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. "Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again'. (John 3 : 1 – 7)

9 "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the [life] which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me (Gal 2 : 20) Baptism is a Death & a Resurrection

10 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned (Mar 16 : 16) Baptism is a Necessity for Salvation Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (Joh 3 : 3)

11 who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while [the] ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water. There is also an antitype which now saves us -- baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, (1Pe 3 : ) Baptism is a Necessity for Salvation

And this we will do if God permits. The Corelation (Link) between Baptism & the Continuous Repentance The Corelation (Link) between Baptism & the Continuous Repentance
