Indeed for the Disciples, in two places it was a part of the accumulative evidence to onlookers that conversion had occurred and the Holy Spirit was now indwelling with these new people.

The acceptance of the gospel, confession, calling on the Lord Jesus, praising and magnifying God, prophesying, are also part of the accumulative “evidence” that true conversion has occurred and cannot be dismissed as insignificant or less miraculous than speaking in tongues. Sure these things can be “faked” just as tongues can also, though I would venture to say they are faked with no less ease or with more regularity than speaking in tongues.

IMO Tongues are very often something less than miraculous, even specific, easily replicated phrases and syllables becoming entirely learned behavior by individuals and entire church assemblies.

Articles on such subjects as "The New Birth," will be accepted, whether they teach that the new birth takes place before baptism in water and Spirit, or that the new birth consists of baptism of water and Spirit. - THE PENTECOSTAL HERALD Dec. 1945

"It is doubtful if any Trinitarian Pentecostals have ever professed to believe in three gods, and Oneness Pentecostals should not claim that they do." - Daniel Segraves
