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!

July 24th, 2016
 

Welcome to Capital City Baptist Church’s 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.

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 throughout our services. 
I pray you 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.

Service starts Sunday morning – 11:00am and Sunday Afternoon – 1:30pm bring your lunch as we go downstairs for food and fellowship between services (we have a few places close by us: Dairy Queen, Thrifty’s, Subway to name a few). Our Prayer Meeting is Thursday nights – 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.
We want to Thank: Julie for joining us a few weeks back, also the Canedy’s came from the US and Bro David preached to us a couple weeks ago, we welcome back Geb and Becky who joined us during their honeymoon. Hello Grace and thank you for bringing Sweet from Alberta to join us, and Praise the Lord – Beven, as he asked for Salvation from the hand of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! Thank you for sharing with us and giving your testimony!

 

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.

 

For the Morning services, reviewed his message on the Body – Pastor started his message on the Eyes – to have proper vision; then the Heart – God looks upon the heart; Your Ears – to hear from the Book and God’s word; regarding the Mouth – this is a 2 part to speak out for God and speak to God - and to eat (spiritual food and physical); Next we move to the Hands – we know that God is a spirit but He talks about having hands, and His hands both curse and bless.
We’re now discussing the Hands of God using 1 Peter 5:6 and Isaiah 64:8 for this passage.
Pastor brought up, how we should be using our hands for God’s glory, we’re to preform work, and honour God…. God created you and me, let us use our hands to be active. Jesus’ hands were active, and then was nailed to a cross for our sakes… Jesus didn’t even flinch and laid his hands down willingly on the cross for every one of us.

 

For the afternoon service, Pastor reviewed his message about Paul’s 6 evidences that he was sincere in his ministry. Using 2 Corinthians 4 as the passage to help us understand this message.
1. In vs1: we see that Paul is determined, because he fainted not in the ministry…
2.  In vs2-4: We see Paul’s honesty, not hiding the truth to the masses…
3. Vs5-7: We see that Paul is preaching Christ and not of himself, giving all glory to God…
4. Vs8-10: Paul has his sufferings, no man has had more suffering than Paul…
5. Vs11-15: tells of Paul’s unselfishness, giving his life to spread the gospel for Christ’s sake and telling of the glory of God to all…
6. Vs16-18: we see Paul’s faith, Paul endured the afflictions, but we shouldn’t look upon the things that can be seen, but for the things that cannot be seen which are eternal.

 

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
