Our Purpose

To be the premier community bank, positively impacting our customers, employees, and communities through Christian principles.

Our Vision

We will remain a family owned community bank. Our entire bank family will demonstrate integrity and honesty, and we will always have fairness uppermost in our minds so as to develop a long term image of which we can all be proud.

We will strive for controlled growth in total assets, keeping profitability as the goal while never risking the overall safety of the institution. This will allow our bank to service the growth and needs of our customers, community, and employees, all the while giving the stockholders a solid return on their investment. In addition to this return, we anticipate being able to offer philanthropic activity toward the communities we serve.

We will be a value-added bank, not a commodity bank. In order to do this, we will offer our customers exceptional service utilizing innovative techniques in order to set ourselves apart from the competition.

Our Values

We are a Christian family and family business and desire to operate at all times under the solid Christian principles and with a servant-leader heart. We are committed to maintaining and developing our family business as a legacy that will continue into the future.


We are committed to Excellence, making every effort to exceed expectations in all we do. We are committed to the long-term success of the bank, to our customers, and to the communities we serve.


We respect and appreciate the different backgrounds, education, and life experiences of all.


We place a high value on the physical, spiritual, and emotional well-being of each individual and encourage a balanced lifestyle.


It is our obligation and a privilege to connect with and support others in our communities and our world through philanthropic activities, making a difference in the lives of others.


We strive to conduct ourselves honorably with honesty and integrity and to treat others fairly and with respect. We aim to demonstrate love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
