Durring the reformed current the Catholic Church from Jibou, built in XIII century, was taken by the reformed Christians. In 1658 was burnt by the Tatars, in 1705 by the Lobonts and the funerary monument from the belfry's wall reminds us of two victims of the Turkish invasion.

The woman with the baby in her arms reminds us about that mother who refuged with his baby in the church's tower where she threw herself instead of ending up in Tatars hand.

The church has its current shape in 1749, thanks to the material contribution of Wesselényi István and his wife as the inscription with two blazons located above the entrance is showing. From old church only a gothic window remained. The pulpit, the table of the Lord and the casetted ceiling, which are keeping the original painting in a single cassette, were made in 1749. The organ was built in 1885 by Kolonics István. The two tombstones beside the entrance are the only ones kept from The Wesselény's crypt. In the church we can see a Wesselényi memorial board.

Beside the memorial board we can see The Wesselényi's blazon. The original bells were not kept, the current ones were made at the begining of the XX century. The clock's pointers built in 1919 are driven by a mechanism of modern clock.

The statue of Wesselényi Miklós located in the church's yard was unveiled in 2004.
