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.

Merry Christmas and Greetings to ALL! Welcome to Capital City Baptist Church’s website. What a great time we had celebrating our Lord’s Birthday… we had the opportunity to share the Gospel of the day Jesus was born, telling and showing the love God the Father has for us, by giving us his only begotten Son to come to earth to save our souls.


We thank our visitors for coming to church this past weekend – Nemia, Joy and John, and Rosemary! What a pleasure it was to spend this Christmas celebration with you all. We look forward to seeing all of you again – soon!


I pray that you will take some time to look around these pages, where you will find out about our church, our faith, and that our God talks to us through His Holy Word, the King James Bible. This is a special time of year, a time where we can go out and share in the telling of the birth of Jesus Christ our Saviour! AMEN! What a glorious time of rejoicing for all who come to know Him.


We at CCBC love going out into our community to share the gospel; we had the opportunity to go Christmas carolling last weekend… we had a couple of families call all their children and watched us sing; others told us they’ve never had carollers come to their door before; and God also gave us the right carol for one special lady who had lost her sister. Unbeknown to us, God directed us to sing the carol, which was her deceased sister's favourite! Praise the Lord for His comfort to those who are in need.


We understand that trying to find a new church can be daunting and sometimes even down right 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 at 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, and join us for our next service.


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, 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.

This last Sunday morning's service, Pastor Carter preached a message about “Jesus, THE Saviour – the One and Only Saviour”
In the Old Testament – God declares He is the only Saviour.
Isaiah 43:3
For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
Hos 13:4 Yet I am the
Lord thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.
Even Mary prayed and called Jesus the Saviour.
Being religious, going to church, being a member of a church, being a good person, doing good deeds, giving tithes, all of these count for nothing if your life is without Jesus’ salvation – you’re going to Hell. God sent His Son to become THE Saviour of this world, taking on the sins of mankind… Please listen this is amazing message about God’s love by sending His Son.

 

For the evening serives, Pastor Carter spoke of the “Wisemen” using Matthew 2:1-10
For what are the wisemen best known?
- They knew the Scriptures… once the star shone, these men from the East knew they had to go to find THE Saviour
- They knew that the this Baby is born King of the Jews
- They were excited to find the King
- They rejoiced and fulfilled their tasks
- They worshipped Jesus – as they bowed down in His presence
- They opened their treasures (Gold – for the king / Frankincense – for the sweet spirit of the Saviour / Myrrh – the bitter smelling perfume for His death)
- They travelled from afar to get to Jesus
This is a great message about how we should strive – just like the wisemen, we should always be willing to follow God’s Word and do His will.


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.
