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.
"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But I say, Have they not heard?..."
What an encouraging day we had today at Capital City Baptist Church. We want to take this opportunity to "Thank You" for visiting our website and we implore you to join us in our services this week. We had a great time of praise and worship amongst our friends and family in the Lord… a time spent in prayer for each other, a time spent researching and challenging each other to learn more about God and His will for our lives. Have you spent time with God today?
The Bible says that "Iron sharpenth iron," - so what does that mean? There is a mutual benefit in the rubbing of two iron blades together; the edges become sharper, making the knives more efficient in their task to cut and slice. Likewise the Word of God is a 'double-edged sword' and it is with this that we are to sharpen one another - in times of meeting, fellowship, or any other interaction.
We are always excited to have Visitors attend 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 preaching 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 started preaching a message in the morning - entitled “Angels” using multiple passages to help us understand this message. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 , Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, 7, and 8 (recording error).
Have you ever wondered about these spiritual beings called "angels?" Have you wondered who or what they are, why God uses them or how they are used for God’s purpose? This message helps us understand why they exist and why God uses these messengers. How do they act with God’s will, are they male and/or female? Have you spent time studying out where these beings came from and what happens when we see them - what do they look like and how do they portray themselves? I know that I’ve asked many of these questions myself and I hope that you can spend some time listening to each part of this message to find out more about these spiritual beings.
For the evening services, Pastor continued a message regarding the "Spiritual Gifts" using 1 Corinthians 12-14 as the text for his exposition.
Part 1, Part 2 and 3 (recording error). Part 4,
What are the Spiritual Gifts mentioned in the Bible? Here is a list of some of these: Wisdom, knowledge, faith, healings, miracles, prophecy, discerning spirits, tongues, interpretation of tongues... Can there be an abuse of these spiritual gifts? All Spiritual Gifts were given to the people to profit the whole church. Paul wrote to the Corinthians and there is a theme to his message in these Chapters; we are all one body; we are to glorify God and use whatever gifts He gives to us as a means to benefit the whole of the body… "the Church." As this message continues, it will reveal itself to what and how the Spiritual Gifts are to accomplish the benefits. Please listen to this and all upcoming messages to have a better understanding of these Spiritual Gifts that God gave.
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.
