Question: I have a friend who attends a nondenominational church, and some of the elders there speak in tongues, but they do not believe that Jesus is God, and they baptize in the 3 titles. I was wondering, are they baptized in the spirit even though they havent been baptized in Jesus' name? If not, then how are they able to speak in tongues? Thank You.

Answer: We have no way of knowing what is taking place in the situation you describe. We do know many believers who received the baptism of the Holy Spirit as described in Acts chapter 2 before they were baptized in water in the name of Jesus Christ. Many who now believe in the oneness of God previously believed the trinity doctrine.
