An invocation of light, color, and love: Sarang Bitneun Church translates to "a church creating love," which served as the leitmotif of this architectural vision. Elements of light, color, transparency, and curved space were used to weave an integrated, aesthetic expression of love. The church views itself as evangelical and contemporary with a sincere desire to appeal to non-believers and strives to stay clear of the overly authoritative bonds of tradition. This is reflected in its motto: “Less Religion, More Jesus.” This church community found the courage to create something truly special, inspired by the words of Matthew 5:14: “You are the light of the world.”
