Our Story

Our story begins in 1964 with the founding of Conservative Baptist Credit Union, which merged in 1984 with the Association of Christian Schools International Credit Union to create ECCU.

Not long after ECCU was created, we began a period of phenomenal growth to become “full service”. We outgrew our building and added staff to support growth in membership, products, and services.

ECCU has continued to grow and transform to become the premier banking option for Christian consumers and ministries throughout the U.S.. Through the years, what hasn’t changed is ECCU’s commitment to the mission of equipping evangelical Christian ministries and individuals to better manage their financial resources so they can pursue their mission. We understand ministry, and know the questions ministries are faced with.

We begin our next 50 years as a growing alliance of more than 10,000 people and organizations who are demonstrating and declaring the gospel in more than 130 countries around the world. We look forward to serving even more Christ-centered ministries, businesses, individuals, and families as we help protect, grow, and share their financial resources.
