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!

 March 29nd, 2015


We at Capital City Baptist Church want to welcome you to our website. We’re a church that is drawn together by our love for God, our love for each other, and our love for God’s Word. We are a diverse group of people of all ages. Every visitor is a "Welcome Guest" 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 evening service. 

I pray you will take some time to look around our site: You’ll find information about our Church and our Faith. We thank God that He ministers 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 want to thank all our visitors this week, Jean Great seeing you again, same with Nemia, we welcome Junior, Josh we welcome back also, and another new comer, Tony! It was great talking to all of you and we hope that we see you all again soon.


Service starts Sunday morning - 11am and Sunday Evening - 6pm. Our Prayer Meeting starts Thursday night – 7pm. 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. We look forward to you joining us for our next service.

If you missed a service, you can listen to past messages by clicking on the link - you will be connected to many great messages, lessons, and preaching on a wide variety of topics by our Pastor Carter - please click to see what messages we have recorded that may help you in your life -or- to gain a better understanding of God’s Will.

This last Sunday morning Pastor Carter continued his message called “A Balm to HealPart 1, Part 2, Part 3 - with Jeremiah 8:22 being the passage to give us a better understanding. One of our ladies sang as a special, "There is a Balm in Gilead" - a beautiful song about a rare, perfumed-resin that was used medicinally, and it signified a universal cure.
Jeremiah speaks to the whole area of Gilead where this balm was harvested for healing properties; to heal and to soothe the pain caused by wounds.
We need to know that Jesus is The Balm that we all need:
1. The Balm of Salvation: Everyone is a sinner, Romans 3:23. Jesus is the Great Physician, the only One, who can save our souls… Acts 4:12. How was the balm applied? Jesus was wounded for OUR transgressions because Jesus has no transgressions of His own, and Jesus is willing to apply His blood as The Balm to cleanse every repentant sinner from ALL sins.
2. The Balm that Encourages the Discouraged heart: Jesus revives our soul when we need encouragement. Why are God’s people discouraged? There are difficulties in life that are not easy. We get knocked down at times - work struggles/ money woes/ family strife/ physical and mental ailments (any or all of these can take a toll on our lives) - these can discourage God’s people. Words from others can also discourage - look at Deuteronomy 1:28. There is another discouragement - the rejection by friends or supporters… but let us be like David and turn to the Lord for the encouragement we need. "...but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God." Some people will let you down, and some may even turn on you, but Jesus never will…
The Holy Spirit revives us by reminding us what Jesus has done for you, and the things that were said… Hebrews 13:5 “… I will never leave you nor forsake you…” or John 14:27 “…Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you…” Jesus even leads others to you at times to help encourage you along the way.
3. Jesus is the Balm of Enablement: At times the disciples' hearts were doubtful and fearful. So too, present day Christians sometimes experience the same doubt and/or fear - that they are inadequate to perform the will of God, to serve Him in an acceptable manner. However, let us fear not because God will equip and enable us to perform and accomplish His desired goal for your life - Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

Please listen to this message, which continues next week.

 

In the evening service, Pastor Carter also continued to preach and expound a message called “The Resurrection of Christ, then our own Resurrection” using 1 Corinthians 15:1-58. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3,
Romans 10 tells us that if we will believe in our heart (with all of our heart) that Jesus rose from the dead, three days after He was crucified and buried, we will be saved.
The Greeks didn’t believe in resurrections.
Acts 17:32 tells that they mocked/made fun of the Apostle Paul - due to his belief of the resurrection.
There are proofs of Jesus’ resurrection in the Bible - it is documented several times. There is much eye-witnesses testimony of this historical event - by: Mary Magdalene, Peter, Paul and 500 people who all saw Him after His resurrection at one time.
*If there was no resurrection, there would be no Saviour or Salvation!

This is message will be continued. Please listen to this message for a better understanding.

 

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.
