Welcome to The Faith Place:

Our church is led by Pastor Samuel L. Hampton II– a humble, yet powerful, preacher and teacher of God’s Word- along with his wife, Lady Meranda Hampton. The church itself is over 90 years old with a rich history throughout the city, region, and even across the world. God has given Pastor Hampton a powerful vision for our church and our community to be more than a meeting on Sundays, but to impact communities and families in a significant way.

We strive to create an environment where everyone in your family can feel welcomed, learn more about Jesus, and find their place apart of our church family. When you join us during our Sunday Celebration at 11:15 am, you can expect to be warmly greeted, to enjoy awesome and heartfelt singing, and a powerful message that will help get you through the upcoming week.

We like to think that we’re one of Akron’s best kept secrets!
