Heritage congregation traces its birth to 1968 when members of Hiawatha Lutheran Church of Minneapolis began holding services at a junior high school in suburban Burnsville.  Hiawatha pastor C. Wosje served this group, followed by Rev. F. Weyland.  The congregation was formally organized in 1971 as a mission congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod and joined the synod that same year.  The original church building, now used as a multi-purpose room, was built and dedicated in 1973.  In 1995 the present worship sanctuary was added.  In 2008 additional school rooms, gymnasium, and entry narthex  were added.

Heritage congregation has been served by pastors E. Teigen 1970-77,  H. Behrens 1977-1980, S. Petersen 1980-84, R. Dale 1984-1992, D. Hoyord 1993-2003, and K.J. Anderson 2003 to present.
