What is baptism?
Baptism is when someone lays you back down underneath water for a short time once you have decided to turn from your sins and be a follower of Jesus. Whoever baptizes you does it in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins can be forgiven. Jesus and His disciples baptized people a lot and the bible tells us we need to be baptized. Take note: sprinkling water on a baby or adult is not baptism!
Who should be baptized?
A person who is old enough to turn from their sins and understand who Jesus is and know that He died for their sins can be baptized. If you are ready to be a follower of Christ (a Christian) and have turned away from your sins, you should be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ (see Acts 2:37-38).
Is there anything special about the water?
You can be baptized in a river, a big tub, or any other place where the water is deep enough to completely cover you. The water is not special water. It is your act of faith and obedience to God that is special. And don’t worry, it’s not scary!

What is speaking in tongues?
Speaking in tongues is what happens when a Christian starts speaking in another language that they don't know because the Holy Ghost speaks through them. The word "ghost" here doesn't mean the fake, spooky kind. It just means God's Spirit inside us.
Are there different kinds of speaking in tongues?
In the bible, believers spoke in tongues in a number of different ways. One time, the tongues that they spoke were heard by people from different countries who actually heard the words in their own language. Other times, believers speak in a language no one in the world can understand and it is sometimes interpreted into our language by another Holy Ghost filled Christian. Sometimes, there just isn't an interpretation.
Do all Christians speak in tongues?
God's plan of salvation is given in Acts 2:38, where the bible tells us that all who repent of their sins and are baptized in the name of Jesus Christ are promised the gift of the Holy Ghost. When believers were filled with the Holy Ghost in the bible, they spoke with tongues. So, according to the bible, when people are saved and filled with the Holy Ghost, the evidence that this happened is that they speak with tongues.
