The great commission tells us to baptise people in the name of father, son and holy ghost. It is a symbolic act of having your sins washed away. Adding confusion to it there is arguments about the mode of baptism, dunking, pouring, and sprinkling. In no text in the Bible does it say it is a requirement for salvation. The only possibility is abject refusal to be baptized. That calls into the concept that the person is not really a Christian. There are denominations that believe baptism is required for salvation.
