Old Karasjok Church (Norwegian: Karasjok gamle kirke) is a former parish church in Karasjok Municipality in Finnmark county, Norway. The church is no longer regularly used, but it is used occasionally for special situations. It is located in the village of Karasjok. The church is part of the Karasjok parish in the Indre Finnmark deanery in the Diocese of Nord-Hålogaland.
The white, wooden church was built in 1807 by the architect Daniel Storch. The church is the oldest church building in Finnmark county, and it served as the main parish church for Karasjok from 1807 until 1974 when the new Karasjok Church was completed. Until 1902, the church had a domed turret, but in 1902 a steeple was built to replace the dome.
