History and Mission

Welcome to Community First Bank of Indiana! We’re so glad you’re here! We hope you’ll find all the info you need about us on this page.

Where We Started
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.
Our Mission

The mission of CFB is to be a high performing independent bank that, as a preferred employer, recruits, trains and retains superior personnel to utilize appropriate service skills, technology and tools to deliver a world class customer experience, resulting in positive outcomes for our shareholders and communities.

Our Vision

To remain a high performing, innovative independent bank, for the benefit of our shareholders, employees, customers, and communities.
