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.

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 throughout our services. 

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 had the pleasure to have Tara from Manitoba visit us, Thank you for your time and playing the piano for us, we truly were Blessed with your gift!

Sunday service starts Sunday morning – 11:00am and Sunday Afternoon – 1:30pm. Our Prayer Meeting are 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.


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 taught on “Looking, Running, and Discarding” using Hebrews 12:1-3 as the verses to understand the message.
We are all in a race, it a Spiritual race – running for God’s glory.
To run what are the things we need: - Endurance – Sacrifice and – Patience
There are 3 things to help us in the run… 1. To run the race properly we need to look at the goal, keeping your eyes fixed upon Jesus. – LOOK
2. When you run, you have to get rid of the things that will bog or slow you down, you have to discard paraphernalia to lighten your load – SACRIFICE
3. And you have to run the race till it is finished, we’re to be PATIENT and endure this race.

The ENDURANCE keeps you strong; be faithful to church, and attendance, in giving and tithes, to His word and your testimony… you should strive to please God, just as Jesus did all things to please God the Father. ** YOU SHOULD STRIVE TO BE LIKE JESUS, WHO GAVE HIS ALL AND DID EVERYTHING TO PLEASE GOD **
The SACRIFICE – to be told by Jesus – Well done my good and faithful servant, isn’t that what we all want to hear from Jesus once we see Him face to face? Our tie here upon earth is very little compared to eternity in Heaven with Jesus. ** DISCARD THE SIN THAT STOPS OR SLOWS YOU DOWN **
3. Paul said “I have finished my course, I have kept the faith” in 2 Timothy 4:7 - Paul had PATIENCE to endure and one day we will finish the race, the race has already been completed by Jesus and all we have to do is claim the victory. **ENDURE TO THE END **
Please listen to this message about Looking, Discarding and Running for God.


Pastor continued his message on 2 Corinthians 1: 1-7, this is the epistle that Paul wrote to commend the Corinthians of their repentive hearts and desires to get things biblical. Pastor calls this message “Words for a true Shepherd
In vs 8 this passage tells of Paul’s sufferings – if we’re made righteous after salvation, why does one suffer?
This is one question that comes up time and time again… It plagues many people that ask this question, but the answer is found in the same passage. We suffer at times, so God can COMFORT us, so we may help comfort others from our situations. There is also the mention of – we suffer so we have confidence in God and His ways. God’s ways are not our ways, and at times it may feel extremely hard, but everything is done with a purpose. We are to grow stronger in the Lord, resting in Him, leaning upon His chest and confiding all with our maker. God is the Father of mercies, and God of all comfort.
Once saved, Jesus makes a promise with each one of us, He promises to never leave nor forsake us. Forsake is a verb meaning to abandon; to renounce or turn away from entirely.
we are made to experience events in our lives, so we have the knowledge on how to deal with situations in our and other peoples lives. This is a talent that is given to everyone. Paul experienced many issues from the day of his salvation to the day he died. ** GOD’S GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR THEE. **

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.
