Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
- Karcher Church is a place where people from all walks of life can begin or continue their journey toward a relationship with GOD. It is a place where seekers, new believers, or seasoned followers can grow in that relationship. We are a community of believers that want nothing more than to establish true friendships with others on the same journey. Our worship is contemporary and our style is casual. You can come just as you are, what is important is that you come.
- Everything has a beginning. Karcher Nazarene had her beginning as The Franklin Road Church of the Nazarene founded in 1949 by a group of Northwest Nazarene College students and community members. The church thrived, and grew rapidly. An 80 acre farm was purchased, plans for a building were designed, and a new name was given: Karcher Church of the Nazarene. At this time, it was a church that seemed to be way out in the middle of farm land, somewhere between Nampa and Caldwell.
- Today, the farm land is gone, and the location is a central location in the City of Nampa. Karcher Church is a growing, exciting fellowship of like-minded holiness people. We are seeing days of harvest in the surrounding community as we continue to endeavor to make Christ-like disciples.
In order that we may preserve our God-given heritage, the faith once delivered to the saints, especially the doctrine and experience of entire sanctification as a second work of grace, and also that we may cooperate effectually with other branches of the Church of Jesus Christ in advancing God’s kingdom.
We believe in one eternally existent, infinite God, Sovereign Creator and Sustainer of the universe; that He only is God, holy in nature, attributes, and purpose. The God who is holy love and light is Triune in essential being, revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Trinity; that He was eternally one with the Father; that He became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary. We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins, and that He truly arose from the dead and took again His body, together with all things appertaining to the perfection of man’s nature. He ascended into heaven and is there engaged in intercession for us.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Triune Godhead, that He is ever present and efficiently active in and with the Church of Christ, convincing the world of sin, regenerating those who repent and believe, sanctifying believers, and guiding into all truth as it is in Jesus.
We believe in the plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, by which we understand the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, given by divine inspiration, inerrantly revealing the will of God concerning us in all things necessary to our salvation, so that whatever is not contained therein is not to be enjoined as an article of faith.

The Bible tells us that tithing is a way to show that we trust God with our lives and our finances. Ready for a truth bomb? Tithing isn’t for God’s benefit. He doesn’t need our money. Instead, tithing is meant for our benefit because sacrificing a portion of our income reminds us to rely on God to meet our needs. Plus it makes us more aware of the needs of others too.
In fact, supporting the needs of pastors and the work of the local church is one of the main purposes of tithing. Tithing helps your local church actively be the church by helping others.
Giving encourages a grateful and generous spirit and can help steer us away from being greedy or loving money too much. Plus, being outrageously generous is a blast!
