The first church built on the current village hearth in 1342, lasted 162 years. It was demolished and in 1506 a new stone church was built, which in 1735 was fenced with a stone wall. In 1744 the tower of the church was raised, but in 1798 it was lightning and burned.

Only the stone walls remain. In 1804 the church was rebuilt. The works lasted until 1810. The continuation was quite late, because between 1814-1817 the Great Famine appeared, so the church was finished only in 1835.

The interior was painted between 1828 and 1835 by Solyom Ignatiu from Borsa, but in 1912 the interior was repainted by Ioan Pop from Buciumi de Salaj. The current painting was done between 1995-1996 by Paul Bătăiosu.

The two bell towers of the church tower were cast in 1923 instead of the three bells taken for weaponry in the First World War.
