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.

Hello and Welcome to Capital City Baptist Church’s website. The ministry of CCBC is all about sharing the Word of God through our actions and our words. Due to this commitment, we are always looking for ways to reach out to the individual needs of God’s people as well as those searching for God. We seek to serve the Lord with all that we do, and we do this by proclaiming the message of the Cross, and by living a life of holiness in an unholy world.

We are excited for all first-time visitors to our Church and we Welcome our returning family the Scott's and their friends, the Gemmell family. It is always a joy to see our good friends from Alberta come to visit. This time, we were blessed with the company of Darren Isaac and the Unger’s (Randy Unger, Dave's father, from Ontario was with them). Praise the Lord for faithful people… You may take a vacation, but you should never take a vacation from God! Amen! We pray that all of you will enjoy your time in Victoria and around the Island!

We understand that trying to find a new church can be daunting and sometimes even 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 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. We have good 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.

Pastor Carter started a new message called “Fishing and Hunting using Jeremiah 16:16 as the text verse to help us understand this message.
If you want the blessings of God, then you have to be close to God for the blessing to fill your life. In this passage of Jeremiah – God tells Jeremiah that He will send warriors to take the Jewish people into captivity… to be taken as prisoners. This doesn’t sound like good news, but all things are done for God’s glory… even if we do not see it.
1. God sends chosen men to gather others for God’s glory (Simon Peter and his brother Andrew, James and his brother John). These four men were commercial fishermen, but He tells them that He will make them to become "fishers of men." To become what God wanted them to be, all they had to do was follow Jesus - and that they did, straightway (immediately)!
**God has never called a slacker or someone lazy – because they will not follow. Are you following God?
2. God sends hunters – what is a hunter? A hunter is a person who seeks and searches out their prey.
Jeremiah 29:13 - You’ll find God when, with all your heart, you search for Him.
Christian, we should seek out the lost. No, we cannot save anyone, but we can direct them to the One who can - Jesus Christ!
**Jesus died for sinners and we are saved for eternity once we believe and have faith in Jesus and in the work He has done for each and everyone of us on the Cross of Calvary.

For the evening service, Pastor Carter continued a message that he started a while back...the "Spiritual Gifts" using 1 Corinthians 12-14 as the text for his exposition.  In this service, he began to teach from Chapter 13 about the necessity of "Love."
Part 1, Part 2, 3 (recording error) Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8,
Part 9, Part 10, Part 11, Part 12, Part 13, Part 14, Part 15, Part 16, Part 17,
What are the Spiritual Gifts mentioned in the Bible? Wisdom, knowledge, faith, healings, miracles, prophecy, discerning spirits, tongues, interpretation of tongues...Can there be an abuse of these spiritual gifts? God gave these gifts to unify the Church. They were given to the believers to benefit the ministry. All Spiritual Gifts were given to profit the whole church. Note! - the administration of these gifts were to always be graced with love. 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."
God gave gifts to certain people that they could use to help others believe that God is the way the truth and the Life.
As this message continues, it will reveal how the Spiritual Gifts accomplished this benefit. Please listen to this and all upcoming messages to have a better understanding of these Spiritual Gifts and Graces 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.
