Hi. Ive heard the primary reason for the baptism in the Holy Spirit is to empower the believer for service. One can hear from God without speaking in tongues, btw. I have been baptized in the Holy Spirit myself, and it definitley increases your faith. It makes for a whole different walk it seems. I guess it happened then when I peeped out that one foriegn word? I dont know. Cant discuss it here anyway.
