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.
Greetings to all our Visitors and loyal regulars to Capital City Baptist Church’s website. What an amazing day of fellowship we had this Sunday, a time in prayer, singing praises to God, and listening to the Preaching and Teaching of God’s Word – studied out from God’s own Book which He gave to Man, our KJV Bible. We are always excited to have Visitors join us at our church so please join us at 11am and 6pm on Sundays and at 7pm – Thursdays nights and find out personally why we trust and believe in God’s promises which He gave to us from His Book.
I pray that you will take advantage and listen to some messages from past sermons. We have many great lessons and preaching on a wide variety of subjects - please click on the link and see what messages we have recorded that may help you in your life or for a better understanding of God’s Will.
Pastor Carter continued a message this morning entitled “If I perish, I perish” using Esther 4:16 as the Bible verse to understand this message. Part 2,Part 3,Part 4,Part 5, Part 6Sorry Part 1 experienced recording errors
Background information about the message: During this time of Esther (circa 500 B.C.), there is a plot to kill off all the Jewish people; made up by Haman, the King's respected man. Esther, the wife of the King Ahasuerus, is told by her Uncle Mordecai (a God-fearing man), to go to her husband and plead for the safety of the Jewish people. But to do this task Esther had to enter the throne room of the King; a place where Esther had not been invited, in recent days. Should anyone enter this throne room without permission, that person could be put to death - ordered by the King. Esther, being a loving niece to her Uncle, follows Mordecai’s instructions - knowing that she may be put to death saying, “If I perish it will be in the name of God” (paraphrasing)…and she pleads for the Jewish people to be spared as she exposed the evil plot to the King. Because Esther’s uncle was a man of God, Esther was willing to go to the King and talk to him, to do God’s will. From this event, we learn: - God chastises the rebellious.
- God places His people where they need to be.
- God blesses His people when they yield to his will.
You should want to please the Lord in your life - to obey is better than sacrifice.
For the evening sermon, Pastor Carter continued a message regarding the "Disorders of the Church" using 1 Corinthians 11 as the text for his exposition.Part 1,Part 2,Part 3,Part 4, Part 5
There are three topics that can cause confusion within the church, and this Epistle to the Corinthians tells us what to watch out for in our churches… the three topics are:
1. Causes of Disordervs 1-22
2. The Consequences of these Disordersvs 23-30
3. How to Correct these Disordersvs 31-34
The Causes of Disorder are:
a) Lack of subordinationvs 1-16 b) Divisions within the church vs 17-19
c) Selfish motivesvs 20-22 1. Breaking God’s chain of command. In verse 3, God gives us the chain of command: God >> Christ >> Man >> Woman
There are heads to every chain of command which all must follow. The women of Corinth were trying to run the church and this displeases God. Jesus did always the things that pleased God the Father, and was willingly obedient to the Will of his Father. If you study out Jesus’ life, you will see a man that was consumed with following the laws God gave us from the Old Testament, and Jesus turned to God the Father for advise and talked with God continually. Have you turned to God today, and asked God for advise? 2. Divisions within the church. In verse 18, there are things - like the length of hair, heresies, drunkenness, and the lack of consideration for others that cause divisions within a church.
Please listen to these messages regarding the Division of the Church under the past sermons.
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.
