I know the assemblies of God church is a pentecostal church that believes in the gifts of tongues. But what is their stance on who should or when we should speak in tongues? Do they follow the classical pentecostal approach that tongues are the initial evidence of baptism of the Holy Spirit? Or do they see the spirit giving gifts as he wills. Meaning he might or might not give the gift of tongues, and that there shouldn't be an expectation of speaking in tongues as proof of Holy Spirit baptism. I have heard from some people that their official stance is classical pentecostal, but in practice many of their pastors don't follow through with it, or at least don't emphasize it much. Is this true? And if so, is there conflict in the denomination about this issue?
