The previous building of the church is likely to be one of the oldest churches in the Bamberg district. In 793, Charlemagne commissioned the Würzburg bishop to build 14 churches in this region between Regnitz and Main in order to evangelize the Slavs who lived here.

Excavations show that the previous buildings of today's church in Amlingstadt go back to the Carolingian era around 800 AD. During this time, the missionary work of the Slavs who lived in Regnitz and Main took place. The late Gothic church was built between 1420 and 1442. After it was destroyed in the Thirty Years' War, it was rebuilt and redesigned in a baroque style after 1644.

Around the year 800, when the Kichen was founded, Amlingstadt was already a respectable place to live. In 1641 a late Gothic church with baroque interior decoration was built in today's style under Pastor Johannes Krapp (a “Gutthäterbuch” provides information on this).Source: HKV Zeegenbachtal e.V.
