At the beginning of the 20th century, Falkenberg received a new church to replace the medieval thatched half-timbered building that was demolished in 1902 because of dilapidation.

The new church, a handsome building with red bricks in the old religious style, held 250 worshipers and was inaugurated on September 18, 1903. On Ascension Day of the following year, the new organ could also be handed over to its destination.

Empress Auguste Viktoria , wife of Wilhelm II , gave the church's altar bible to the community. The two bells in the tower with a wide roof bore the dates 1508 and 1595.
