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.

Happy Easter!!!
Welcome to Capital City Baptist Church’s website! We are truly honored that you found our website, and I pray that you take some time and search around our site. Feel free to browse these pages to find out how God is working with us in our community.
What an amazing day we had, sharing Easter Sunday (Resurrection Sunday) with like-minded people. This is a very special day, one where we get to celebrate what our Saviour did on the cross at Calvary - to show His love and to be our ultimate Sacrifice, a Sacrifice that God the Father is proud to recognize. Jesus Christ came to teach us about God’s love, God’s will. He taught us how to pray and to act. Jesus came to show us what it is to be a follower of God and how to respond to God’s calling.

We are always excited to have Visitors attend our services - will you please be our next visitor and join us at our church? Services start on Sundays at 11am and 6pm and again at 7pm - Thursday nights. Please attend our Church to find out personally why we trust and believe in God’s promises, which He gave to us from His Book.

I pray that you will take advantage and listen to some messages from past messages. We have many great lessons and sermons on a wide variety of topics preached by our Pastor Carter - please click on "Links" to see what messages we have recorded that may help you in your life -or- for a better understanding of God’s Will.

Pastor Carter preached a message in the Morning Worship Hour, entitled Raised Up using Romans 4:24 to explain his message.
God showed His love by staying on that cross. This was Resurrection Sunday!
1. God Raised up a SAVIOUR for the world - Luke 1:68-69. Jesus means Saviour.
2. God Raised up the Saviour on a cross - John 3:14-15.    Jesus needed to be lifted up that through him we all may be saved.
3. God Raised up the Saviour from the grave - 1 Cor 15:4. Jesus is alive for evermore.
4. God will Raise up ALL Believers to Heaven  Rom 8:11. Every true believer will be called up, Jesus will raise us up with his own power.
May our minds be stayed upon Jesus and our hearts loving the Saviour who first loved us and proved His love by staying upon the Old Rugged Cross - dying for everyone.

In the evening services, Pastor Carter asked us a question “When was Jesus Buried?
We all know that Jesus was to be in the grave for 3 days and 3 nights, and He had to be buried in the grave before the High Sabbath (the Holy Day).

In Mark 15:25 the Bible says “And it was the third hour, and they crucified him…” and in Mark 15:33 it says “And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.” Therefore it was in the 9th hour when Jesus gave up the ghost. Mark 15:42-47 states that Joseph of Arimathea, an honorable counselor asked for the body of Jesus, so he could lay Jesus into a new sepulcher.

In order for us to understand when those 3 days and 3 nights began, we need to find out when did the Jewish day start and end, Well, the Jewish day started at 6pm.

Therefore, we can deduce that Jesus would have to be buried on Wednesday afternoon for Him to rise up on the third day. Jesus was crucified at 9am, this is the Jewish 3rd hour; the sun darkened at 12:00 noon, which is the 6th hour; Jesus died on the Cross at 3pm, the 9th hour. Jesus would have to be taken down off the cross, cleaned, wrapped in linen and and His body prepared for burial using herbs. He had to be placed in the tomb before 6pm… the start of the High Sabbath which started at 6pm. Therefore Jesus was buried on Wednesday just before 6pm. He was then in the grave Wednesday night; Thrusday day and night; Friday day/night; Saturday day making that 3 nights and 3 days. Jesus arose at 6pm, Saturday. When Mary Magdelene and the other Mary went to the tomb Sunday morning arpund 6am, they found the tomb was opened and empty.

Revelation 1:18 – Jesus said “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” We have a LIVING Saviour!!!! AMEN!

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.
