The New Vision Christian Center church began in the form of cottage prayer meetings in the home of Byron and Lillian Trosper in 1948. The small congregation then rented a stor building on Grandview Road in which to worship. The congregation was set in order as an Assembly of God church March, 1951. In June, 1951, they purchased the former 1st Baptist Church building at the corner of Main and Grandview Road. The church was then called Grandview Assembly of God.
Property was purchased at today's location 1958 and the first unit, our present chapel, was dedicated in 1959. The original Truman Farm Home property is across the street from this site. President Harry S. Truman, who sold the property to the church at a greatly reduced price, attended the dedication. Wings were added to the first unit in 1971. Additional acreage was purchased bringing the total to 7 1/2 acres. The new sanctuary was built in 1978. Another 1.4 acres was purchased in 1985 at the corner of Grandview Road and Blue Ridge. The old filling station/fruit stand/boat sales building on that property was remodeled into a multi purpose building and Christian School. In 1999, construction for a new Family Life Center/gym broke ground on the main property behind the church. In 2002, construction started, adding a two story Christian Education Building to the Family Life Center. With the completion of the construction, the corner lot/building was sold in January 2006. In February 2017, the church voted and changed the name to New Vision Christian Center.
