Salvation Reflecting its Methodist influences Pentecostal soteriology is generally Arminian rather than Calvinist.[6] Pentecostals believe that in order to receive salvation and enter Heaven one must accept the teachings of Jesus Christ as described in the Bible. This includes being born again or being regenerated and is the fundamental requirement of Pentecostalism. Most Pentecostals also believe that salvation is a gift received by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and cannot be earned through good deeds alone such as penance. Also most do not believe that Spirit baptism or speaking in tongues is required for salvation; though believers are encouraged to seek these experiences. However there are notable differences among them as to exactly how one is born again especially between Oneness believers and other Pentecostals. For the Oneness Pentecostal perspective on salvation see the Oneness Pentecostal section of this article below. We belief and practice center on their understanding of the infilling or baptism of the Holy Spirit. Most Pentecostals understand this infilling to be subsequent to salvation which allows those who have been filled to experience spiritual gifts which are described in the Bible.[7] Traditionally Pentecostals have taught that the initial evidence of Spirit baptism is speaking in tongues unlike charismatics who generally assign no special importance to tongues considering the receipt of any of the gifts as evidence of infilling. Pentecostalism distinguishes between the Spirit’s indwelling which happens when one is saved and the baptism of the Holy Spirit which is subsequent to salvation. There is usually a distinction made between two types of tongues. First many see it as the initial evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit when a believer speaks in tongues for the first time.[8] Most Pentecostal denominations consider this to be the sign of that believer being filled with the Holy Spirit.
