Built of oak beams on a stone foundation, the church is raised to the height of 1 meter, the narthex, nave and chancel form a whole, looking as an old building, solid with a controversy past, which is why it was listed among the oldest national monuments.

The church's form is an ark one and the exterior is carved in oak beams of a cable ship, symbolizing the Christian hope.
