The architecture for this church is centered by a wide nave arranged with six arches and a bell tower that symbolically lays importance on the seven elements, the seven days of creation and the seven churches of the Orient. The impression of a biblical open sky image is created from which the light amid the Holy Spirit descends upon the followers and worshippers. The softly curved arches specifically designed for fine acoustics also remind of a hand overwhelming the crowd. For the use as an authentic concert hall facility the temple displays the comfort of lodges discreetly positioned right from within the arches. The adjacent kindergarten was designed by the same office, six years earlier.
