I believe in one God, eternal and almighty, creator of heaven and earth, who is one in essence, and one in person and who for us became one of us, and yet remained God.
Salvation is by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ; that obedience to the gospel is an integral part of saving faith; that repentance, water baptism, and the baptism in the Holy Spirit are integral aspects of conversion/initiation; and that speaking in tongues is the initial physical evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit. In this way, tongues are vitally connected to the experience of salvation, yet tongues do not have saving efficacy. Speaking in tongues is not a condition that we must fulfill, but a work of God in us according to His will. The goal is not to seek tongues in and of themselves, but to seek a relationship of faith with Jesus Christ and to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
