Built during the times of German Baron Otto Herman von Vietinghoff between 1781 and 1788, under the supervision of Riga architect, Christoph Haberland, the church is one of the most beautiful in Latvia due to its architecture. The height of its tower is 55.5 metres. One of the most characteristic traits of the church is its original colourful pattern of carved boulders. The altar painting of the church "The baptism of Jesus" was renovated in 2000. In 2006, the renovation of the organ constructed by the famous organ master, August Martin, was completed.

The church was built during the rule of Baron Otto Hermann von Fittinghof and built between 1781 and 1788 by the architect Christoph Haberland.  Built in the style of Classicism, the church has elements of the Baroque style and a set of colourful rocks in a mosaic on the façade.  The organ was built in 1855 by August Martin, and the bell was evacuated to Russia during World War I.  The congregation replaced it with a much older bell (1530).  The altar painting, “Baptism of Christ” was pained by an unknown artist and was restored in 2000.  During the mid-19th century, there were many Estonians in the congregation, so worship services were held in Estonian, too.  The church was restored in 1934, and now it dominates the city with its 55.5 m high tower.
