In the 1st Corinthians chapter 1 verse 6 Paul The Apostle says "Christ sent me not to baptize but to preach gospel".
As Paul said like that, many contradictions going on about baptism is not need for salvation. so, now the question is whether baptism need for salvation or not?
Leave your comments below and Let's have some precise answers.

1.baptism is a self declaration to the heavens that you submit yourself to the mission of God (whether you accomplish it or not you are accountable for that)
2.there are two types of baptism. By water and by spirit
By water is a declaration to the church
By spirit is a declaration to God
3.baptism is very important in Christian life on Earth but accomplishing god's mission is much more important for your after life

Why Paul The Apostle said like he'd not come to baptize but to preach gospel.
What would be the reason for that command? If we see in Paul's view, baptism will not need. Isn't it? My query is here why Paul didn't give significance to baptism?

Considering Jesus himself took the baptism , it appears to be that it is not required for salvation.

The mission of Christ is to give salvation
All human beings became eligible to inherit the grace of God and receive his salvation
So, baptism for Christ had a different meaning and purpose
Baptism for the believers has a different meaning and purpose

If he had deemed water baptism necessary for salvation, as some people proclaim today, he would never have made a statement like this. Paul did not consider baptism a requirement for salvation.

Baptism is an act of obedience that we should do, but itís not what saves us.

Read my comment before...
Salvation is an act of declaration
That's what Jesus did
Fulfilling the mission of God is beyond salvation.
Salvation is commitment
Whether you deliver the commitment or not is the result
Mat 7:22 is the check for your commitment
So, commitment is measurable not the act of declaration

Baptism is, as i have pointed out. It is an act of Obedience. Ofcourse it is a public declaration too, but what comes first is an act obedience to what we had already believed. Because you declare what you believed and obeyed. Otherwise it is not the true faith that has to be acted on to be alive (James 2:17/ Rom 10:10) So, first comes belief and then the result of that we obey and declare to the world (Act 8:37/Mark16:16).

5 இயேசு பிரதியுத்தரமாக: ஒருவன் ஜலத்தினாலும் ஆவியினாலும் பிறாவாவிட்டால் தேவனுடைய ராஜ்யத்தில் பிரவேசிக்கமாட்டான் என்று மெய்யாகவே மெய்யாகவே உனக்குச் சொல்லுகிறேன்.
Baptism is very very important
Without baptized no one can't reach heaven.
Whoever says anything don't believe them
Water baptism is very important for a soul
The person who baptized should confess by his heart, not by his word of mouth.
While baptism especially when we were dipped in water, our last soul goes out, while we came out our new soul which was white as snow was given by the God.
If anybody confess only by word of mouth and said I'm baptized, it's not a true baptism, that person should come by his or her heart with the blessing of lord, they should be baptized again.
I includes and concludes this,
Water baptism is very very important.
May God bless

If baptism is necessary for salvation, then why did Paul downplay it and even avoided it from the description of what is required for salvation? It is because baptism is not necessary for salvation.
We are in no way intending to diminish the importance of baptism. Baptism is important, water baptism is a command of Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20) and is the initial action upon believing, we act in obedience to Godís command and every Christian should be baptized, it is an opportunity to act on our new profession of faith. In this sense, water baptism is very important.
Likewise, water baptism doesnít save us. Itís our faith in God that does that.
and, John 3:5 doesn't teach us about water baptism.
Being born of water is not speaking of water baptism as being essential for salvation. People were born again before they were baptized in water. This water could be speaking of the Word of God (John 15:3, Ephesians 5:26, James 1:18, and 1 Peter 1:23) or the natural birth of a baby. John 3:6 might support the water as meaning the natural birth; however, either of these two interpretations are agreeing with Scripture and do not pose any disagreement, as would water baptism.
