1660 Johannes baptizes his daughter Margretha Köller. This seems pretty early to be our Johannes Koller but he could be Johannes' father.

Johannes Koller bap 1660 entry 106 image 1794 1651-1708 "Bieber church records"

Translation by Robert Seal:
This is the baptismal record for Margretha Köller, who was named after her baptismal sponsor Margretha Süntzel.
106. Johannes Köller, at Bieber, baptized a little daughter; Margaretha, daughter of Baltzer Süntzel at Gaßen, [served as baptismal sponsor], and [the child] was named after her, on the 19th of September in the year 1660.
My comments: The name "Baltzer" is a variant of "Balthasar".
Here is the link for Gassen from Meyers Gazetteer: Gassen is approximately 1 mile east of Bieber.

Marion Wolfert translation:
Some of the words are cut off in the middle margin. It basically states:

Your question: Is it possible Johannes is from Lanzingen?
Answer: The answer is yes based on the following article about Lanzingen from the German Wikipedia:
Go to section 2.2, Historische Namensformen: you will see three historical forms of the name of this place, and the middle name "Landtzingensesse" is close to the form written in the record as "Lantzengesäß". So I agree with you that Johannes Koller is from the place which eventually is called Lanzingen. 

1690 Catharina Lorenz Koller is also from "Lantzengesäß" or Lanzingen: Could Catharina be Johannes's sister?

1691 Georg Koller is from the same town as Johannes Koller, namely "Lantzengesäß" or Lanzingen. He baptizes a daughter named Magdalena: Could Georg Koller be Johannes' brother? Seems unlikely if he is dead, see document above.

My comment: Counting the date as line 1, I am unable to decipher the last word at the end of line 3 which begins with "ehl", the remainder of which is lost; this may effect the meaning of the final part of the translation.
