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.

September 20th, 2015

Please take note, we at Capital City Baptist Church have changed our times of Service, our Evening Service is now an Afternoon Service starting at 1:30pm.

We at Capital City Baptist Church welcome you to our 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 and Thursday, you will be challenged to read, study, and apply the Biblical principles that are preached and taught each morning and afternoon service. 

I pray you will take some time to look around our site: 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? We welcome back Placedo, Nemia, Karen and Miriam; Thank you for joining us Prentice; also Liam and Yuko... Great to see you all again! It is always a pleasure getting time to worship with all of you.

Service starts Sunday morning – 11:00am and Sunday Afternoon – 1:30pm. Our Prayer Meeting starts Thursday night – 7:00pm. 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 past messages by clicking on the link where you will be connected to many great messages, lessons, and preaching on a wide variety of topics by our Pastor Carter.

Last Sunday morning Pastor Carter continued his message about the Five Crowns a Christian can win/earn. Praise the Lord we do not have to work for our Salvation, but we can work for our crowns.
What are the Five Crowns that one can earn?
1. The Crown of Life – James 1:2-3
2. The Incorruptible Crown – 1 Corinthians 9:24-27
3. The Pastor's Crown - 1 Peter 5:1-4
4. The Soul-Winner's Crown - 1 Thessalonians 2:19-20
5. The Crown of Righteousness 2 Timothy 4: 6-8
So what is required to earn/win these crowns?
The Crown of Life: When your love for God endures as you face trials Revelation 2:10.
The Incorruptible Crown: When the Christian runs the race that God sets before him/her (performing that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God). Everyone who competes can obtain this crown - this involves faithful church attendance, crucifying selfish desires in the flesh, and pointing people to Jesus. As described in this text passage, this crown will never rust, nor ever be stolen. Matthew 6:19-20 states that you should not lay up treasures here on earth, but in Heaven - for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Just to mention, none of the other crowns will ever tarnish either; nor once they are earned/won, will they ever be stolen.
The Pastor's Crown or Crown of Glory: When Christian pastors are faithful to feed the flock of God; also given to those who support and follow the man of God.
The Crown of Righteousness: When Christians love and look for Christ's return for all "church-age" believers. These are those who have been saved from the time Christ was crucified until He comes in the clouds to rapture His church to Himself. Jesus promised that He would go and prepare a place for us who believe in Him for the salvation of our souls and He tells us that He will return again. John 14:3.

God will award these crowns for your faithfulness to His Word, and God will NOT forget your labour of love that you expend for His sake. Please join us for next Sunday morning for the continuation of these messages regarding the Five Crowns.

The Afternoon Service, Pastor continued his message in 1 Corinthians 16 - this message started with Tithes and then How to Help Other Servants of God. Paul outlines his wishes telling the Corinthians that he wants to return to Corinth, but will reside in Ephesus until the next Jewish holy day is finished (Pentecost). Paul was being used at Ephesus - God opened the door for His work to be done, but Paul also shares with us that there are many adversaries fighting against him.


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.
