It is the second oldest Lutheran church in Indiana and the oldest in the northern part of the state. It has long played a prominent role in Indiana Lutheranism and in the Missouri Synod as a whole. The congregation's first sanctuary was constructed in 1839, built on the site of the present sanctuary. The congregation constructed a second, wood frame church in 1847, building an addition to this structure in 1862. The present church was first completed and dedicated in 1889, but a 1903 fire forced a near-complete rebuild of the structure.
