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!

 February 22nd, 2015


We at Capital City Baptist Church welcome you to our online website. We’re a church that is vibrant and growing as a Christian family - drawn together by our love of God, our love for each other, and our love for God’s Word. We are a diverse group of people of all ages and we embrace all who
repent of their sins and come to God for salvation. It blesses our hearts when people want a relationship with the One who created all things and all people.

On any given Sunday you will be challenged to read, study, and apply the Biblical principles that are preached each morning and evening.
 

I pray that you will take some time to look around our pages: where you’ll find information about our church, our faith, and see that our God talks to us through His Holy Word; the King James Bible.

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. 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 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 and evening service, Pastor Carter preached a message called “The Stone That Breaks Or Grinds” using as his text: Matthew 21:42-45.
      Morning Service   –   Evening Service
The context for this message is regarding the Cornerstone of the church… we use the parable of the householder demanding fruit from his vineyard.
What is a Parable? A parable is an earthly story depicting Heavenly truths.
What is a Cornerstone? This is a larger stone, it is stronger than the rest of the stones, it gives proper foundation, this is the principle stone for direction, it is the most important stone in the whole building.
1. Old Testament: Isaiah 28: 16-17 God says: see, I lay a stone in Zion a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation.
2. New Testament: Ephesians 2:19-22 says that Jesus is the chief cornerstone
The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner– Psalm 118:22
3. What does it mean when the stone falls upon you? The Bible tells us that Jesus is the Rock of salvation, but if you refuse to accept Him as your Saviour from sin, He will fall on you, grinding you to powder (figurately speaking of one being eternall destroyed in Hell).
    Matthew 21:43  ~ Jesus is the Rock of Salvation
    2 Samuel 22:1-3 ~ the Lord is my Rock and my fortress, and my deliverer
    Romans 9:33  ~  I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence
    Psalm 18:31  ~  or who is a rock save our God?
    Psalm 31:3  ~  For thou are my rock and my fortress;
4. What does it mean when you fall on the rock? If you (in humillity) fall on the Rock of salvation,
willingly trust the Rock for your eternal salvation –  just as in number 3 - you will find out that the Rock of salvation is Christ Jesus the Lord, the Chief Cornerstone of the New Testament Church. When the sinner trusts Christ for salvaiton, Christ makes that one a part of His building, the Church, and a part of His family - guaranteed to dwell with Him forever and ever.

Have you been saved, Jesus is the stumbling stone that you will either fall upon – or- it will fall upon you.
Please listen to this two part message for a better understanding of this message about our Christ, the Cheif Cornerstone.

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.
