The Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit

We believe the initial physical evidence of the baptism is speaking in tongues for two main reasons. First, the book of Acts records five cases where people were baptized in the Holy Spirit for the first time. Those cases, which are described, point to tongues as the initial physical evidence. Second, Acts clearly states that the early church leaders recognized tongues as the initial evidence on at least one occasion: at the home of Cornelius.
