It starts at the beginning, Acts 2, and briefly describes the history of the Pentecostal movement. Then it provides answers to 20 straightforward questions believers often have about the baptism in the Holy Spirit.

  • Do Christians receive the Holy Spirit when they are saved? If so how is the experience different from the baptism in the Holy Spirit?
  • Can a person receive eternal life in heaven without receiving the baptism in the Holy Spirit? If so, why should we be baptized in the Spirit?
  • Once a person is baptized in the Holy Spirit, why is it necessary to be refilled later?
  • What is the difference between “speaking in tongues” when one is baptized in the Spirit and “speaking in tongues” publicly? Also what is the advantage of “praying in tongues” in one’s prayer life?
  • When tongues are exercised publicly according to the biblical standard, should there always be an interpretation? Who should give the interpretation?
  • For whose benefit and for what purpose are there utterances in tongues followed by interpretation?
  • Is it possible for an interpretation of tongues to run contrary to the teachings of the Bible?
  • As humans, do we play a role as to whether or not tongues and other gifts will operate in the church?
  • Can a person be filled with the Holy Spirit without speaking in tongues?
  • In the first outpouring recorded in the New Testament, there were tongues of fire and the sound of a violent wind. Why does that not occur today?
  • Is it possible to be saved and baptized in the Holy Spirit at the same time?
  • First Corinthians 13:8 says “Whether there be tongues, they shall cease.” Wouldn’t this indicate the baptism in the Holy Spirit was only for those first followers 2,000 years ago?
  • Since Paul suggested in 1 Corinthians 14:19 that it is better to speak intelligible words in church than to speak in tongues, doesn’t it follow that the experience of tongues is unnecessary today?
  • Is there proof the outpouring of the Holy Spirit experienced today is genuinely biblical?
  • Why do Pentecostals emphasize speaking in tongues when it is mentioned only a few times in Acts and 1 Corinthians 12 to 14?
  • Who should be baptized in the Holy Spirit?
  • When people are filled with the Holy Spirit, are they in a semiconscious state, or are they totally coherent and aware of what is happening?
  • Why are some people baptized in the Spirit immediately, while others seek so long without receiving the experience?
  • When a person is seeking the baptism in the Holy Spirit, can anything be done to prepare his life or environment that will quicken the infilling?
  • Is tongues the only evidence of the infilling of the Holy Spirit? Will there be any significant changes in one’s attitudes and actions after being baptized in the Holy Spirit?
