Pentecostal Churches generally believe, like the charismatics, that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit described in the New Testament including speaking in tongues, healing, words of knowledge, and prophecy are active today. However, unlike charismatics, some who identify as pentecostal believe that speaking in tongues is the primary evidence of the Holy Spirit's presence in a person's life. A person who doesn't have any evidence of the Holy Spirit may not be a true Christian. As a result, pentecostals may place a greater emphasis on the exercise of these gifts in their gatherings.
