The first Protestant Reformed church was consecrated in 1576 on Marktplatz, today's Goetheplatz, after Countess Margarethe von Henneberg brought the new ideas of faith to Berleburg in 1534 following her marriage to Count Johann VII zu Sayn-Wittgenstein.
In 1825, the church survived the great town fire almost unscathed, but it had to be closed in 1839 due to structural neglect.

The current four-bay gallery basilica made of local graywacke and red sandstone was rebuilt on the current site and consecrated in 1859. Special features include the "Patron's box", from which the princely family watched the service, the large bell from 1741, which is accompanied by two smaller bells from 1954, and the bullet holes in the clock face on the south side of the 41 m high tower, which date back to the Second World War. The organ dates back to 1974 and was installed as part of a major renovation. At the same time, the Berleburg artist Wolfgang Kreutter designed the principals.
