Missionaries in Russia

Jim and Laura Hutchinson

The Jim Hutchinson family consists of Jim and Laura and their three daughters (Alaina, Katie, and Emily).

Jim was saved at the age of 18 and Laura at the age of 7.  As young adults they met at church and were married in 1992.

Brother Hutchinson surrendered to preach while on a mission trip to Mexico in 1991. In 1996, during a mission conference, they surrendered to be full-time missionaries in Russia.  Jim completed his schooling and they served a three-year internship at Thomas Road Baptist Church, in Phoenix, Arizona. During their internship, Laura served as ladies’ ministry director and nursery coordinator. 

Jim and Laura were approved as BBFI missionaries in May 2001.  Following two years of deputation, they arrived in Moscow, Russia on May 3, 2003. 

The Hutchinsons spent their first term on the field engaged in intensive language study, pastoring Grace Baptist Church in Moscow, assisting another missionary in Moscow and working with other Baptist missionaries to compile Bible college curriculum that will be used throughout Russia. They are now serving the Lord in Moscow on their second term.

Their vision includes continuing to pastor the Grace Baptist Church in Moscow (with an emphasis on prayer and evangelism) as well as to see the Bible college curriculum finalized and implemented in the local church in Moscow and in other cities across Russia.  Their desire is to train nationals to be more effective in the local church and to assist those who have the desire to engage in church-planting throughout Russia.

The Hutchinson's sending church is the Thomas Road Baptist Church in Phoenix, Arizona. Their mission board is Baptist Bible Fellowship International.

We thank God for this dedicated missionary family. Please join us in praying for the Hutchinsons.

Welcome to our Website!

 July 20th, 2014

Greetings and Thank you for finding our website. Capital City Baptist Church consists of a group of people who want to share our faith with anyone that is searching for God and His truth in this world. We encourage you to look around our website to see who we are, what we believe, and how we respect and worship our God, our Father… Better yet, why not come to our services and we can better explain these things to you.

We understand that trying to find a new church can be daunting and sometimes even intimidating, but we invite you to come and experience our home church. We’re a friendly, inviting group and we’re always excited to have Visitors attend services… Will you please be our next visitor and join us this Sunday or Thursday? Services start Sunday morning - 11am and Sunday Evening - 6pm and our Prayer Meeting starts 7pm - Thursday nights. Please come to find out personally why we trust and believe in God and the promises He gave to us in His Book, the Holy Bible.

This past Sunday, we were privileged to welcome the Uresti’s (Bob and Anna) from Kent, Washington. Thank you for joining us on that day to worship. It is a good testimony that even when you’re on vacation – you still come into God’s House to worship. I pray that you had a great time here for your vacation. Please come back anytime.

If you missed a service, you can listen to many past messages by just clicking on this link - you will be connected to many great messages. We have good lessons and preaching on a wide variety of topics by our Pastor Carter - please click on "Links" to see what messages we have recorded that may help you in your life -or- to gain a better understanding of God’s Will.

Pastor Carter started preaching this morning on a topic called Going Out Witnessing using Acts 5:42 as the Scripture to give us an understanding to this message.
Last week Pastor was giving a lesson about Ask Them Which Heard Me. This is a continuing thought to Christ’s quest to get the Gospel out to the world.
Christ gave a commission to all saved people - we are to go and preach to the world so all may hear the message of salvation; and as we go, we are to show God’s love and mercy to mankind. Jesus said, not only to preach in the temples, but to preach in every house.
We understand that not everyone likes to go out witnessing. Sometimes we get a good response when we give the Gospel to people (when the people enjoy your time and you get to talk one-on-one about God).
Most of the time, people are nice and willing to talk a bit about God and to tell us about their friends or family members that go to church, but are counting the seconds till you leave.
Then, there are those who choose to berate or show their anger by confronting you. BUT you have to remember – these people do not know you, and in reality it is Jesus whom they are rejecting… not you!
This message is to be continued this coming Sunday morning. Christian, have you ever thought of witnessing and how we are to use it to glorify God? Please listen to this message about witnessing.

In the evening service, Pastor preached about how we all belong to one another, In Christ, we (all believers) are all part of one family; we are all one body. We share the same confession, we have the same God and are all drawn near to Him because of His love that He shared with us through His Son… Jesus Christ.
We need each other to grow stronger, to sharpen one another. We all affect each other, whether we realize it or not. We help each other because of our Faith, and commitment to the church family. God gave us a Pastor – he is a "gift to the church" and we are to support him. He is the one who leads God’s flock here on earth till Jesus comes. We are to help, because God called this man to be here for us. In Numbers 18:6 the Levites are called "a gift" to the Hebrew nation. These priests were chosen by God to minister to the Jewish people. Well, God gave us a minister too… and our Minister is Pastor Bill Carter. Pastor may the Lord lead you, give you words, protect you, and we lift you up so that we may be blessed with the words God gives to you for us.
We salute and embrace you, Pastor… You truly are a gift to us at Capital City Baptist Church!

We continually trust our Heavenly Father to build this church for His glory! It is our heart's desire to see people being saved in Victoria and the surrounding area and for God to bring other believers our way. Please pray with us concerning this desire. Thanks again for your prayers for this ministry. Your prayers are very much appreciated. We also count it a privilege to pray for the salvation of souls and the growth of saints in your church. Thank the Lord that "...we are labourers together with God...1 Corinthians 3:9.

We will continue to update you as God dispenses His blessings upon us.
