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.
Happy New Year and we pray you have a great 2016 from all of us at CCBC.
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.
Service starts Sunday morning– 11:00am and Sunday Afternoon – 1:30pm. 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.
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 and afternoon, Pastor Carter taught on “Proper Vision.” using Proverbs 29:13 to help us understand the message. This passage says “Where there is no vision, the people perish...” Most people in this world have experienced some vision problems or difficulties that impairs their sight. It’s good to have "proper vision" in this world, but it is even better for us to obtain "proper spiritual vision."
How can we get "proper spiritual vision?"
1. We need a proper vision of God:Isaiah 6:1-8. Let us see - Isaiah’s transforming vision, then the effect of the vision… Isaiah saw God as the Exalted One, the holy God! How can we get a proper vision of God? Read the Bible; which tells us, how much better God is than are we. The Bible is God's corrective lenses that help us to see Him, as He truly is. The Bible gives us "proper spiritual sight."
2. We need a proper vision of ourselves: Isaiah 6:1-8 When Isaiah saw how holy God is, he realized how unholy he was. Isaiah confessed his sins… We are ALL sinners, and have come short of the glory of God. We need to see ourselves in the true light. Isaiah 64:6 tells us “for all our righteousness are as filthy rags.” This means that we are not, nor will we ever be as good as God.
God gave us the Bible to be our corrective lenses in this world - teaching us that the only way we can become righteous and acceptable to God is to believe in His righteous Son for the salvation of our souls. When we confess/repent of our sin and place our whole-hearted trust in God's only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, for the salvation of our soul; at that moment, God imputes the righteousness of Christ to us, a repentant sinner. It is only by the grace of God that we are saved, that we gain the forgiveness of our sins, and that we are given God's eternal life through Christ. All of this is a gift from God! We cannot get to Heaven of our own accord, because we will never be good enough; but there was One who was good enough and He gave Himself for us. This righteous Son of God offers His salvation and sanctification to us, when by faith, we trust in Him for His salvation. Jesus Christ is the Saviour… do you know Jesus?
3. We need a proper vision of the lost: Where there is no vision of the lost condition of the sinners around us, we will do little or nothing to tell them that God loves them, Christ died for them, and that He will save them (if they will repent of their sin and place their faith in Him). Upon the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ's words, the majority of people are perishing. Matthew 7:12-13 says “Wide is the gate and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.” In simple terms, the great majority of people are going down the path of destruction that leads to an eternity apart from God in Hell. Sadly, most people who are perishing, do not even realize their plight.1 Corinthians 4:3-4 says “...the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not...”
Until one is saved, the Bible clearly teaches, we’re condemned to Hell. We’re born in sin, we live in sin, and we die in sin. However, there is a remedy for us. The Bible also teaches us that Jesus, the only Saviour, was moved with compassion on the lost of this world (Matthew 9:36), took our sin in His own body on the Cross (1 Peter 2:24), died in our place (paying in full the penalty of sin - 1 Peter 3:18), was resurrected for our justification (Romans 4:25), and now offers us His salvation (Matthew 11:28-29). Will you accept Christ as your Saviour from sin? Christian, what vision and attitude should we have towards the lost? As Jesus’ heart was moved with compassion, may our heart be also…and, may we take every opportunity to reach them with God's saving message of God's love and Christ's sacrifice for them.
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.
