Welcome to Community First Bank of Indiana
On February 3, 2003, Community First Bank of Indiana made history by opening the first new bank chartered in Howard County in over 55 years. In a span of less than 3 months from the date shares of bank stock became available for sale, CFB became operational raising 25% more capital than required by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Indiana Department of Financial Institutions. The success of the initial capital offering is attributed to the overwhelming support for the vision and creation of a new way to do banking in our community – a bank that is locally owned, locally governed and staffed with experienced bankers.
To have the people of our community at the core of our business every day. With all local management, we understand the needs of Indiana which will empower us to be a local bank in every sense. We will develop and maintain knowledgeable personnel dedicated to offering high-quality services and products that are delivered with a personal touch. Efficiencies will be developed to simplify banking and offer competitive rates. Through these objectives, we will become the premier local financial institution thus maximizing the value of Community First Bank of Indiana to our Shareholders.
One of our core beliefs is that we must be actively involved in making our community a better place to live and do business. Our staff and directors are committed to the long-term success of not only Community First but our community and are actively involved in numerous civic and non-profit organizations. Our slogan, “This is your Community, This is your Bank”, is not just a slick marketing phrase; it is why we’re here and what we’re all about.
