In 1517 reformed religion became dominated in Sălaj County and in Sărmășag too. About the old church there are no information only assumptions. The nave of present church was built in 1806 ant the tower in 1831. The tower was broken up until 1876 when it was covered with iron. In the same year the shingle of the nave was replaced with iron. In 1885 the church was destroyed by a fire.

In 1887 it was rebuilt but the later lanslides deteriorated its walls so bad that the authorities were oblidged to close it. With the ocasion of renovation in 1896 it was strenghtened with methalic elements and buttresses. The furniture was renovated as well. In 1922 other four buttresses were made. In 1929 appeared new cracks and the buttresses are knocked down, the church was renovated again but the cracks appeared again. The buttresses of reinforced concrete built in 1965-66 seemed to have resolved the problem. The initially organ was destroyed in the fire in 1885 and the actual one was made in 1892 by Kolonits István.

The walnut near the church was planted in 1888. Frm the branch broken by the storm the christians made decorative objects.
