Messiah Baptist Church Federal Credit Union

History & Mission 

The Messiah Baptist Church Federal Credit Union, MBCFCU, was founded in 1973. With our low-income designation we qualify for additional funding and programs to extend services to those undeserved among traditional banking institutions.

We believe all should have access to capital and the resources to build a secure financial future.

Your share accounts or savings accounts are insured by the National Credit Union Association up to $250,000. Messiah Baptist Church Federal Credit Union is also a member of the New Jersey Credit Union League.
