No, you don’t; because it was explained to you well over two weeks ago (by me) (in this very thread) that:

It’s important to note that at the time of the vision Joseph also sees his own parents in the Celestial Kingdom—even though they were still alive at the time of the vision.  Thus the vision represents the future (or at least, a potential future), not the 1836 status quo.  The vision should not be interpreted as suggesting that Alvin received his exaltation before/without receiving the covenant rituals that are associated with salvation.

Weird. It's almost as if no one is actually listening, just arguing. Not sure what to make of that.*

*I'm actually 100% sure what to make of it.

Acts 28:27 

For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

All those who inherit the celestial kingdom of post-resurrected glory must first be baptized either in the flesh or vicariously after death for the remission of sins. Doctrine and Covenants 76 testifies that the inheritors of the Celestial glory “are they who received the testimony of Jesus, and believed on his name and were baptized after the manner of his burial, being buried in the water in his name, and this according to the commandment which he has given...”

Aside from the baptism you mentioned, is there another proxied ordinance mentioned in Doctrine and Covenants that helps one
inherit the celestial kingdom?

Take your own advice and read it all and then decide for yourself.

Also, there is a story in the Bible that might help, it is about Jonah.
