We believe the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19—“therefore go and make disciples of all nations…”—is just as applicable to our business as it is to each believer’s life.
Our passion is to expand God’s kingdom; our vehicle is partnerships with Christian ministries, churches, and individuals. Every time you use Christian Community Credit Union for your banking needs, we can help other ministries build churches, expand ministry, and reach out to the lost. The more money placed on deposit with Christian Community Credit Union, the more we can serve.
Our Cards that Give to Missions & Ministries program has given us the opportunity to donate more than $4.9 million to missions and ministry projects since 1995. At year-end, cardholders have the opportunity to donate their points to missions and ministry projects. Many of those ministries reach out and share the love of Christ in our own country and around the world.
