Karcher Church is for anyone who desires to begin or continue their journey towards a relationship with God. Here, you’ll find seekers, new believers, or seasoned followers growing and establishing true friendships along the journey of following God. Our worship is contemporary, our style is casual. Come as you are because what is most important is that you come.

Karcher Church began as the Franklin Road Church founded in 1949 by a group of Northwest Nazarene College students and community members. As our church grew, an 80 acre farm was purchased, buildings were designed, and a new name was birthed: Karcher Church of the Nazarene. We are an excited group of Christ followers, seeking to bring Jesus to people and people to Jesus.

2515 W. Karcher Road

We believe God to be the eternal, infinite, Sovereign Creator and Sustainer of the universe. He alone is God, holy in nature and purpose. He is Triune in being, revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


We believe Jesus Christ is 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.


These four tenets shape how we live life.


We believe the Holy Spirit of God has been active from creation to this very day. Christ on His departure from earth said, "I will send you a comforter". He was speaking of the Holy Spirit who convinces the world of sin, transforms our lives and empowers us with gifts of service. He guides us into all truth as it is in Jesus.


We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God useful in revealing His nature, our true identity, the gospel of Christ, and His will for our lives.


We are the sons and daughters of God intentionally joining our hearts with His to grow in his image.


We display radical hospitality as we celebrate together and carry each other's burdens.


These six commitments shape our decisions and reveal our character.


We are empowered by God and church leadership to be equipped to take risks in serving others.


We believe God's Word is the final authority on faith and our lifestyle.



We Honor God through our words, actions and the meditation of our hearts.

We give of our time and resources to bless others.


Together we are greater than any one individual. Our staff brings different talents, experiences, and spiritual gifts to the table to lead us. Our purpose is to know our identity in Christ, know our spiritual gifts, and to live into our destiny of honoring God and blessing others.
