About Us

Grace Chapel is a small, bible-based church located in Akron, Ohio. As a church, we are conservative in doctrine but casual in dress. We value solid bible exposition and we encourage fellowship. Please look below to learn about our history and what we believe.

Our History

Over the past few years the Lord has transformed Grace Chapel in a truly amazing way. Founded in 2003 by the Reverend Harry Knotts, Grace Chapel began as a small outreach ministry for Sunday morning golfers at Mayfair Country Club. As time passed the ministry began to expand when the golfers started bringing their spouses and children to the Sunday morning services.

Although things were going great at Mayfair, the golf season soon ended and the ministry was relocated to a clubhouse at Prestwick Country Club. From there, the church was moved to Seifert’s Flower Mill in Jackson Township. The worship and fellowship continued in the Flower Mill’s banquet room for more than a year.

On Easter Sunday of 2008, Grace Chapel relocated to Orion Street in North Canton, Ohio. The Chapel suited the Church's needs for a little more than a year.

On June 1st, 2009, the church relocated to our first true church home at 1060 East Turkeyfoot Lake Road in Akron, Ohio. What a blessing from God, the church sites on approximately 14 acres of wooded grounds with a lake, ballfield, playground and a sanctuary that holds 120 people.

Please stop by and visit with us and allow us to take you on a tour of this beautiful part of God's creation.

What We Believe

At Grace Chapel our beliefs are grounded in conservatism and have been framed in the following four pillars:

The Lord Jesus Christ- The only head of the church
The Holy Scriptures- The only rule of faith
Salvation- The gift of God, only by Grace through Faith
Fellowship- In the gospel of God, “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together.” (Heb 10:25a)

Grace Chapel is a congregational church that is governed by the leadership elected through the fellowship. We are not affiliated with any major denomination; however, we do fellowship with the Ohio Conservative Congregational Christian Churches, and Grace International Fellowship and Testimony.
