05 Twenty Stories of How People Received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit

Mark Virkler

I wanted real life stories of how people received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the gift of speaking in tongues, so I sent out an email asking for people to share their testimonies with me. Below are 20 such stories I received back. My guess is that if we did a survey of 2000, what we have below would be fairly typical of the 2000. So what do we learn from their true life stories?

The baptism in the Holy Spirit involves an interaction with the Holy Spirit. It is a yielding of my faculties to a greater degree to the Holy Spirit and allowing Him to take control of them. It is an empowering experience. Whenever the Spirit guides an action, power is present. The simplest gift to manifest is tongues, so that is a great place to begin, although not necessarily the only place to begin as in one story in Acts, prophecy was part of the initial manifestation of the Spirit.
