CEO Corner - Welcome 2017

New Year’s always brings a fresh start and a new perspective on our lives, where we can take stock of our situation and envision the life we’d like to live. While getting healthy and losing weight are admirable goals, I would encourage you to take this time to also evaluate your financial situation.  
As your financial partner, Christian Financial can help you turn your resolutions into reality. Here are a few solutions that Christian Financial offers for some common financial resolutions:

1. Reducing or eliminating debt.
Credit card debt can be crippling to your financial health, with some store cards charging upwards of 30% interest. Transfer your balances to a Christian Financial Visa card and save money on interest each month while paying down your debt more quickly. Our Visa Platinum Card offers rates as low as 8.90% APR.*

2. Saving for a home. A home purchase is an important step in building equity and a financial cushion later in life. Christian Financial offers a NestFund certificate to help save faster for a home purchase. Plus, if you decide to purchase your next home with Mortgage Center, Christian Financial will even match your interest earned up to $500!

3. Reduce expenses.
It’s a good practice to periodically evaluate your bills and look for ways to save. One way to accomplish this resolution is by refinancing your auto or recreational vehicle at Christian Financial’s low rates. You’ll save money each month with lower payments and spend less on interest overall.

4. Saving time.
One thing we can all agree on is that spending time with the ones we love is important. Christian Financial’s electronic and mobile services allow you to get that time back to spend on the things you enjoy. Services like: Mobile Banking, mobile check deposit, and online loan applications allow you to handle your finances whenever and wherever is most convenient for you.

5. Saving money on everyday purchases.
Christian Financial members receive exclusive discounts and rewards through our Community CA$H program. Simply by downloading the mobile app and using their CFCU debit or credit card, members can save at many local businesses and even add other rewards programs into the app to maximize their savings. 

As you begin to form your resolutions for this New Year, know that you don’t have to face any financial decisions alone. Christian Financial’s Financial Service Representatives are here to help you reach your goals.

If you would like a Financial Service Representative to contact you about saving money by refinancing your current debt, fill out a contact form here and someone will be in touch shortly.

Wishing you a financially healthy and happy 2017!

For You & Because of You –
