There exist different backgrounds in the society and each specific group has its own unique skills that can be used to identify their culture.

The floor is made using imported Siena tile placed in a pattern resembling Venetian separated by twelve violet plaques of broccia marble reminiscent of the twelve disciples. The Baptismal Font is made of a single solid portion of Siena marble which is an exceptionally beautiful Italian carving. A curved eagle lectern is placed over the font. It’s from the lectern where the church services are conducted. An elegantly curved screen for the choir rests above the rostrum. The interior of the building is well furnished with beautifully curved woodwork of mahogany found in Santo Domingo. It is this mahogany that was used to do the paneling, make doors and the pews which were imported specifically for use in the church construction. The windows were well designed and are made of well stained glasses that are distinctive from each other resembling the Apostle Creed’s articles. The organ of Roosevelt was constructed again and a solo organ included during the new construction. At the Southern gallery there are Estey installations covering the organs of the echo and chimes. They are all played from the manual console in the loft of the choir.
