About Us

Financial services

on a mission.

Far more than a tagline, it’s a way of life for how we operate. Like the people we serve, we believe that mission matters. We are ministry-minded, through and through, with a shared passion for Kingdom expansion, a focus on delivering a top-notch experience though the financial services we offer, and assuring that ministry is the true winner. 

CIF helps churches and individuals to grow and engage

We empower and partner with individuals and churches to grow their finances, and we help churches with loans to better engage their communities through the use of properties and facilities. We also consult with churches and related ministries to improve the organizational and planning aspects of their operations.

Sales of Investment Certificates raise funds

Impactful investments by individuals, churches, and like-minded organizations earn interest and the proceeds CIF receives from the sale of Investment Certificates help fund and support our church lending program.

We major in ministry, and always have, since 1959

We are a religious nonprofit corporation affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church of America and serving EFCA and like-minded churches and related ministries. Our primary purpose is to provide faith-based financial solutions that serve Kingdom expansion by partnering with and serving investors and borrowers nationwide.
