We have something for every age, so we hope that you will come and check us out.  Our hope is that you would feel like you are among friends and family as you worship alongside us.

Who We Are

Learn through the study of God’s word and the community of the church.

Love God and those around us by showing them the love that Christ shows to us.

Live out our love for God and others by putting our faith into action.

Our Beliefs

  • We believe in one God–the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures given by plenary inspiration, contain all Truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
  • We believe that man is born with a fallen nature and is, therefore, inclined to evil.
  • We believe that finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.
  • We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whoseoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated, and saved from dominion of sin.
  • We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.
  • We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised and the final judgment will take place.


We have many opportunities throughout the week to gather together to learn from God’s Word and gather together as a community to share life together.

kearney-nazareneIn February 27, 1916 the Church of the Nazarene in Kearney, Nebraska was established and organized by Rev Theodore and Minnie Ludwig. With only 23 members and the help of the West Nebraska Holiness Association built a large building to hold Sunday services in southeast Kearney near Collins Park. That same building was later donated to the Church of the Nazarene’s District Assembly, which they used the building to hold campfire meetings, religious retreats, and other events.

In August of 1916, while the new church was being built, services were held in the Salvation Army building and later at the Swedish Free Church. The buildings were offered to the Nazarene church to hold services rent free. People of the community and members of the church donated their  time, labor, and sacrifice to construct the new church. The first pastor of the church of the Nazarene was Rev. A.C. Holland. The congregation later moved in the newly built church which was located on 16th and 23rd Street in Kearney, Nebraska. Then 1941 lots on 26th and A Ave. were purchased for the future church to be built in July 1943.

Plans for moving for the final and present location at 3211 Q Ave began in 1970. In March of 1971, the big news among the Kearney Nazarenes was the old church was going to be completely down and the new construction of the new church would begin. Emerson School would be the temporary locations for services until construction was completed.

In September 9th, 1971 the new Church of the Nazarene was dedicated by Rev. Willard Emerson. Then in 1995 building the new addition of the fellowship hall and gymnasium, which was dedicated in October of 2000 by Pastor Harold Stratton.

Pastors following Rev. Emerson were Reverends and Pastors: Jack Attberry, Steven Greene, Ronald Johnson, Harold Stratten, Keith Bateman, Damon Asbil, and  Pastor Rick Thomason.
