Is water baptism in Jesus name necessary?
The Apostle Peter explained what happens at baptism when he said, "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit" (Acts 2:38). But he did not restrict this teaching to adults. He added, "For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call." (Act 2:39).
What is speaking in tongues?
Speaking in tongues was a dramatic miracle that helped the Christian church begin (Acts 2). The book of Acts records two other occasions on which the Holy Spirit caused people to speak in tongues when baptized with the Holy Spirit.
