Christian Community Credit Union has partnered with American Baptist International Ministries (IM) to offer you a unique credit card that gives to global missions while you save money and earn significant rewards. For every new IM Visa credit card account opened, Christian Community Credit Union will donate up to $50 to support IM. Plus, every time you use your IM credit card for a purchase, the Credit Union makes additional donations to IM.
The IM Visa Card is a unique way to support IM and its efforts to recruit, train, and send global servants. IM works cross-culturally to invite people to become disciples of Jesus Christ and to proclaim, through both word and deed, God’s reign of justice, peace and abundant life for all creation.
