Policy on Speaking in Tongues

Often people who adhere to the modern "Tongues Movement" desire to work with us in CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, INC.


Past experience has shown that when this has been allowed, because of doctrinal differences, confusion results, and the work of reaching children for Christ suffers.


The State Board, therefore, has found it necessary to implement the following policy:


Therefore, in order to implement this Policy on the State and County level, the State Board of CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, INC. requires all Committee Members, Directors, Teachers, and Volunteer Workers to sign without reservation our Policy Relative to “Speaking in Tongues.”

Due to the controversy of the "Tongues Movement," we are asking that you refrain from discussing your opinions.

 

Should you find that you have broken your agreement with this policy, we ask that you contact your county director immediately.


We appreciate your understanding our position on this matter and your graciousness in accepting this agreement.

CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, INC. will not accept or allow to remain in its organization or program anyone who speaks in, or aspires to speak in, ecstatic utterances, commonly referred to as "tongues."
