The church, which in style resembles the Lutheran church in Oradei, Romania, was built in the Neo-Gothic style in 1910 according to the plans of Ernö Gerely, an architect from Budapest. The distinctiveness of the church is seen in its slender 56 m tall bell tower in the axis of the building, towering over the entrance doors. The inside, on the other hand, stands out by the distinct color base in green, yellow and brown hues. A larger stained-glass rosette portraying Martin Luther is placed over the altar painting, which depicts Jesus crucified, and is the work of the famous Hungarian artist Bory Jenö. Since 2010, the church is named after Martin Luther, at which occasion a memorial plaque of Martin Luther was also unveiled.
