Baptismal Regeneration?

Craig Higgins writes in a footnote:

When I have been asked if I believe in baptismal regeneration, I simply say, “not in the way that is commonly understood in evangelical circles.” No one in the Reformed tradition has taught that baptism automatically guarantees final eschatological salvation. Thus, while there may be epistemological tensions (after all, the sacraments are mysteries!), there is no final theological conflict between the traditional Reformed understanding of election and the ordo salutis and a strongly instrumental sacramental theology.
