Meanings of the violin style
Violin is a Western musical instrument and its playing skills are quite important. The construction of a church requires people to learn constantly and practice repeatedly like playing a violin. A Christian should also think whether he can insist on the faith when committing himself in the religion. The cross on the top means lifting the cross highly and "letting praise arise".
There are 70 sections in a violin. For Christians, the number “seven” is connected with the word COMPLETE. Although the shape of church is unique, it still aims to lift the spirit of Christ's love, glorify God and edify people.
