Old church in family painting Olav's chapel in Sarpsborg?

That painting I have from someone in my grandmother's family of a church with a tile roof in Norway, maybe Sarpsborg? Linked here so I don't lose it, a picture of a building at Borgarsyssel Museum in Sarpsborg. Sure looks like it.

[Portal of Olav's chapel in Borgarsyssel museum is a copy of Skjeberg church one of the two medieval churches in Sarpsborg.] Not much information, but something to go on. It's a two-page PDF file available on the Sarpsborg kommune [local government] website. Address:
