A yellow brick shell over a cruciform ground plan with a semicircular choir to the west and an overhanging tower (48 m) to the east. Baurat Buttel himself chose the "Byzantine" or round-arch style for this elaborate new church building, which is characterised by classical antique design, Schinkel's practicality and the use of neo-Romanesque decorative elements. In view of the modest conditions in Fürstenberg at the time, Buttel did not consider it appropriate to opt for the "Gothic" style. Today's observer is confronted with this first large new church building by Buttels, a unique building of noble proportions and forms, of beauty and functionality, but also a testimony of the search for an independent style of Protestant church building.

The sanctuary was completely altered in 1963. Pulpit and altar table were replaced, candlestick, cross and batik cloth on the theme of the resurrection of Christ reflect styles of the fifties and sixties. The renovation of the interior after 2002 restored the stained glass windows, the original terracotta capitals and the original coloured wooden ceiling to their original splendour.
