The earliest existing historical records of the church date back to 1589, but the church was not new at that time. In the 1770s, the church was described as a log building in a cruciform design. There was a choir in the east with a sacristy attached to it. In 1794–1795, the church underwent a massive renovation. The deconstructed a lot of the building and then rebuilt the church, reusing as much of the old materials as possible. The church was renovated in 1882 and again in 1929. Based on the building's history, it is not unlikely that parts of the present church consist of materials from the late Middle Ages.
