Stronger Together: How Your Membership Helps Ministries & Churches Grow

August 25, 2023

Group of People United

Christian Community Credit Union (CCCU) is a truly unique banking experience because every member is unified as believers in supporting goals that help advance God’s Kingdom, such as spreading the Gospel, Biblical stewardship, and living and giving more abundantly. When you join CCCU, you are joining thousands of Christians across the U.S. who have made banking with their values a top priority.

To understand CCCU and its values, it’s important to know its foundational principles as a credit union. The credit union model was built upon the philosophy of “People Helping People.” In fact, for years, credit unions primarily stood for service, not for profit. It is this commitment to “service” that has defined how credit unions were built to be member-owned and member-focused with a volunteer board of directors. CCCU has expanded this value of “service” to that of serving God honorably and serving His purposes around the world.

How this comes together is in how CCCU, as a credit union, is made up of a community of “Christians Helping Christians.” This means that as our membership base grows, it enables us to not only offer you better incentives, rates, and services, but empowers us to serve those around the globe in active ministry. In other words, your membership has a direct impact on other members, as well as Christian ministries. Specifically, the money you invest and entrust to CCCU is managed with a biblical stewardship framework and thus used for biblical causes and initiatives. Below are just a few examples:

1. Affordable Loans for Churches and Ministries

As a member-owned credit union, we’re able to offer competitive loan and deposit products exclusively to churches, and ministries because we operate and exist for our members, not for profits.

2. Church Plant Program

We help church planters gain a solid financial footing with products that include no-fee ministry checking, digital banking, and online tithing solutions.

3. Affordable Equipment Loans

As churches and ministries grow, they require new assets such as video and sound equipment or vehicles. As a member of CCCU, you enable us to provide competitive rates to assist these churches in acquiring the equipment they need to grow.

4. Construction and Property Loans

Because of our members, we are able to service churches and ministries with competitive rates for construction, property purchase or refinance, treasure management services, and more.

5. Ministry Deposits

We are proud to offer high-yield checking and certificate products that allow us ministries to be good stewards of their resources and to multiply them.


All this and more shows how we, as Christians, are stronger together. Unite with thousands of believers across the U.S. and become a member today. Click here to join.
