Praying in tongues is one of the mystery God gave  believers to triumph of the earth.

You might never fully actualize your full potential without the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

We need to be baptized with the Holy Ghost. That is where our power lies as a believer.

The word Baptism is from the word Baptiso.. it means to be immersed..

For water baptism, you go fully into the water (immersed). It must cover you. Signifying death and Resurrection in Christ Jesus.

When you become born again, you need to get filled and baptised with the Holy Ghost. You have a measure of the Holy Spirit but you need to be filled and that's where Baptism comes in.

Mark 16:17
As believers, we have authority. We are devil chasers.

We need to know who we are in God.

Speaking in tongues is one of the signs that you are a believer

We have many church goers not disciples..

We cannot be ashamed of praying in tongues.

There is a difference between the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
 
Every believer has the holy spirit inside but to be filled with the holy spirit is pray in tongues and have a personal encounter with the holy spirit.

(John 14:17, Acts 1:5, Acts 1:8, Acts 9:17)
The Christian journey was never intended for us to do with our own strength.

We need the Holy Spirit to help us through.

We cannot be praying only with our understanding. 

1 Corinthians 14: 5-18.

A Christian that prays in tongues can never be stranded. Can never lack inspiration and direction.

1 Corinthians 14:39
You need to have a personal experience with God. You need to know him for yourself. Not just what somebody tells you about him. When you have that experience, you life will not remain the same.

Acts 1:14-15
God will judge you by His word, not anybody else's.

You are who God says you are. Not what astronomy says you are. Your identity comes from the word of God.

Whatever is not in the Bible is not applicable to you. Whatever you hear that is not based on the word of God, throw it away. It is just an opinion.

 Acts 2:3-4.
Speaking in tongues is not conjuring and talking whatever you like. The Holy Spirit gives you utterance.

The Bible is complete. All your questions are answered in the word..
