I can see two problems with your team:
1) Your Sage is too low-level. You want them to be level 45 so you have Kazing.
2) Your Martial Artist doesn't have Shield level 100, so is unprotected.
Also you haven't mentioned any scrolls that you have. I hope your Sage has the Shield Scroll, and all four characters are holding Yggdrasil Leaves in case of emergency.
I actually didn't find Baramos (at least at level 1 & 2) very difficult. I cast Magic Mirror on all four of my characters, along with Acceleratle from my Mage, Ice Fource from my Armamentalist and Insulatle from my Sage. Then it was just a case of whittling down his HP. Half the time, Baramos's magic attacks reflected off one or more of my team members, doing him damage instead of me.

Buffs are your friend.

Use the Magic Mirror + Forbearance combo on your toughest character to soak up all the damage while relflecting attack spells. This saves your healer mana by only having to heal one character while the other two just do as much damage as possible.
I used this strategy to beat Baramos Lv.1, only needing to revive characters twice the whole fight.
