Looking for assistance with the parents of Augustus Alexander Muller, Born 1842 in Cologne, Germany

My Great Grandfather, Augustus Alexander Muller/Mueller/Miller was born 24 September 1842 in Cologne, Germany to August Muller and Adelheid Schmitz.  He moved to New Zealand approximately 1863, married my Great Grandmother in 1877.  He was a cabinet maker, many of his descendants followed in that profession, so I can only assume that he learned the trade from his father.

All I really know about his parents is the following:  August Muller born about 1825 in Germany, Adelheid Elisabeth Schmitz born about 1820-1825 in Germany.  Married 20 April 1843 Godesberg, Rheinland, Prussia.  They had a son 21 September (not sure of the year, the vital record did not show it), Hermann Joseph Mueller/Muller in Godesberg, Rheinland, Prussia.  Another Son Augustus Alexander Mueller/Muller 24 September 1842, Cologne, Germany (died 20 October 1919, Footscray, Victoria, Australia)

August and Adelheid have been my "forever" brick wall.  I have searched all over ancestry, my heritage, family search, and a smattering of "other" german sites.  German research is so far out of my comfort zone that even if I was looking at the right records, I doubt I would even recognize it.  Imagine a deer in the headlights, that's me trying to focus on German records.

What religeon was Augustus ???
I need Adelaide exact date birth and Augustus,there are too many

people with same names.
Unfortunately I don't know Augustus or Adelheid's religion.  The only think I know about Adelheid and Augustus is their marriage date of 20th April 1843.  I know it's not much, but I'm truly hoping someone can chip a brick or two out of this wall they have built around themselves.
