The organ occupies its own niche in the sanctuary room. It has a central position, to reflect its important function in this sacred room. The façade of the organ (the organ prospect) was designed as a collaborative effort between the architect and the organ builder
and reflects the ambitious character of the church. As a result, this instrument has become a sculpture, which constitutes part of the composition of the room. The 188-stop organ was built by organ producer Ryde og Berg Orgelbyggeri. It was completed in 1989 and is recognised as one of the best organs in this part of the country. It is often used for concerts.

The adornment of the altar wall is a depiction of the resurrected Christ, in the form of a tapestry. One of Christ's hands points upwards, while the other breaks outside of the composition. This represents the power from the nailed hands, which have no boundaries. This image of the resurrected Christ hovers in front of a background of the northern lights. The northern lights, which is clearest and strongest when darkness dominates the horizon, is seen as a symbol of the Holy Spirit, and also represents hope during the long, polar nights in Northern Norway. This tapestry was made by the textile artist Else Marie Jakobsen from Kristiansand. This is the eighth altarpiece she has adorned.
