The baptism of water baptism refers to the water washing. You have to read more than one sentence to understand this. Context!

I agree:

To phrase Trent's Canon in the affirmative, read what is bolded in red to get the context!

"If any one saith, that the sacraments of the New Law are not necessary unto salvation, but superfluous; and that, without them, or without the desire thereof, men obtain of God, through faith alone, the grace of justification;-though all (the sacraments) are not ineed necessary for every individual; let him be anathema" (Decree on the Sacraments).
