It true that flagella helps the bacteria to move.

Because the flagella is the part of locomotion or movement.

The flagella aids the bacteria in movement.

Bacteria move about their environment by means of long, whip-like structures called flagella.

They rotate their flagella like tiny outboard motors to propel themselves through liquid environments. They may also reverse the direction in which their flagella rotate.

Bacteria move with the help of flagella.

Bacteria moves about by aid of a long tail like structure known as flagela.

What about gliding motility?

A bacteria can still move by type IV pilli or secreting mucus and be moving along a surface. So flagella do help the bacteria to move, but if they don't have one, it doesn't necessarily mean they can't move.

Gliding motility mechanism also present.
