TYPES OF TONGUES

THREE TYPES OF SPEAKING IN TONGUES

1. There are three types of speaking in tongues.  Each type has a different purpose.  Everyone can experience the first and second type – the initial evidence of receiving the Holy Ghost and tongues used in personal prayer.  Some people may never experience the third type of tongues (the Spiritual Gift); although, it is something to which we should definitely aspire.

2. The following diagram illustrates the three types of speaking in tongues with scriptures that apply to each:
