The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit

The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is seen by the initial physical evidence of speaking with other languages (or tongues) as the Holy Spirit gives them utterance.The speaking in tongues in this instance is the same in essence as the gift of tongues, but different in purpose and use.

Acts 2:4; 1 Corinthians 12:4-10; 1 Corinthians 12:28
