About US >


First Baptist Church Federal Credit Union was established while under the Pastorate of the late Rev. Theodore R. Lee, Jr., and received its Charter in 1975 from the National Credit Union Association, (NCUA). We are located on the lower level of First Baptist Church at 100-10 Astoria Blvd., East Elmhurst, New York, 11369. Business hours are on Sundays (1:00 P.M. – 3:00 P.M.) Immediately following the 10:30am church service; and on Tuesday 6:30pm - 7:15pm & Thursdays from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. You may contact by telephone or fax at 718 507-5457.

Principally, our credit union is a savings and loan organization that is very much like a bank. However, services are limited to the First Baptist Church membership, their immediate families; and its auxiliaries and sponsored organizations.

As a member of the National Credit Union Association, we must conform to federal, state and NCUA regulations, as well as the policies set forth by our Board of Directors and approved by the membership. We are proud of our achievements, reputation and the services we have offered to our community for more than thirty years.

In addition to its shareholders, our Credit Union is comprised of volunteers working as tellers, bookkeepers and three functioning committees:

The Board of Directors consists of seven to nine Credit Union members, and is lead by its President, Reverend Willie Daniels. Key functions of the Board are ensuring compliance to NCUA, state and federal regulations, establishing policies, and overseeing the total operation of the Credit Union. The group meets at 7:30 P.M., on the second Tuesday of each month.

The Credit Committee is currently made up of three persons whose primary responsibility is to review and process loan applications. Each member of the Credit Committee has a thorough knowledge of credit union procedures, and recognizes the importance of confidentiality.

The Supervisory Committee is responsible for making sure that all accounts, record keeping and files are accurate, and maintained in compliance with our governing agencies’ regulations.
