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!
May 15th, 2016
 

Welcome to Capital City Baptist Church’s 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.

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 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 bring your lunch as we go downstairs for food and fellowship between services (we have a few places close to us: Dairy Queen, Thrifty’s, Subway to name a few). 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.


We Thank our return visitor Barry, and our visitors from Palm Springs – Bruce and Joyce, and Max and Sheila from USA also… it was a pleasure getting to talk with all of you and thank you for joining us on the Lord’s day.

 

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.


The message on Sunday morning - Pastor Carter has been teaching a series about on “The Body (Spiritual and Physical)” - using Exodus 4:13-31 to help us understand the message.
Pastor first started the series with the eyes (to see, to have vision), then the heart (God looks at the heart and you need to love God), over to the ears (to hear the message), then the mouth.
We use our mouth for two purposes… One is to Eat and Two is to Speak.
EATING - Our Spiritual food is what we must eat to have eternal life and Jesus tells us to feed on him. No, we’re not talking about physically eating upon Jesus like a cannibal, but to feed upon the word. In John 6:48-58 we see that Jesus tells us to feed to have eternal life, also in Psalm 34:8 it tells us that the Lord is great at taste, once you have a taste, you will want Him!
We must feed on the word of God… a new Christian feeds upon the milk of the word – because the milk is easy to take in and to digest. Then we start to grow, and the evidence that we’re growing is that you want to feed, and feed, and feed… there is a perpetual hungering. Jesus tells us from the Beatitudes in Matthew 5:6Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
SPEAKING – when we use our mouth and our tongue, we should be Praising God… How are we to use our lips? Proverbs 8:7 Solomon tells us that his mouth shall speak truth, and wickedness is an abomination to his lips.
Job 27:4 – Job makes the decision to not speak wickedness nor utter deceit **We ought to make a commitment as Job did to God; to use our lips to praise Him.**
Even in Proverbs 4:24 – Solomon the wisest man says to put away from thee a froward mouth and perverse lips far from thee.  How is your speech and how do you talk about the Lord?
The tongue is a little muscle that can help encourage people, or if used for evil to discourage.


The Afternoon Service, Pastor Carter preached “Paul’s Ministry – Part 2” using 2 Corinthians 3 as the chapter for our understanding.
From this chapter, it is told that the Gospel is written on the heart… not on stone like the Ten Commandments. This is because hearts can regenerate, hearts can get renewed, and God can move into your heart. Salvation works from the inside out.
This chapter tells us that not only the New Testament, but also the Old Testament (OT) is good for our edification, as the OT contains the Law, and the Law is a Schoolmaster to teach us that everyone is a sinner and that no one can be saved by the Law.
The Gospel has lasting glory, even the OT is still glorious because of the Law, but the New Testament is better because of Christ; as there is salvation through the blood… the New Testament complements the Old Testament and we’re not to put the OT away. Jesus quoted from the Old Testament, just as we should still use and study the OT.
When Jesus died on the cross, the veil (like a curtain) at the Holy of Holies was rent (torn) in two… this place was a sacred place where the Great High Priest would go in the inner sanctuary once a year to atone for the sins of the Hebrew nation. The veil was made of very fine weave, and was VERY strong; the veil was used to separate the people from God. When Jesus died, the veil was torn away, as Jesus is now the High Priest and we can go to God with Jesus as our intercessory as the Holy of Holies is now exposed to everyone, meaning we do not need another priest to intercede for us - Jesus' blood atoned for ALL our sins. Isn’t God good to us?? Amen!
Please come to our services to listen to this message about Paul’s ministry.

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.
