Abyssinian Baptist Church Federal Credit Union is a credit union based in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood in Upper Manhattan. The credit union was created in the 1940s to provide safe and affordable financial services to members of Abyssinian Baptist Church, one of the oldest African-American Baptist churches in the United States. Established in 1808, Abyssinian Baptist Church embraces a rich history of worship, spiritual leadership, social activism and community service, with an activist commitment to serving the needs of the greater Harlem community and New York City, as well as the global faith-based community that make up the church.
Today, Abyssinian Baptist Church FCU continues to be a not-for-profit organization committed to serving the congregation and community, offering its 300+ members competitive rates on financial products and services that make it easier to meet financial goals and needs.
About Our Products & Services
An account (called a share account at a credit union) that lets you earn interest on the money you deposit. Interest rates are low, but minimum deposit is small. Unlike investment accounts, savings accounts – and the money you keep in them – are federally insured up to $250,000.
A loan lets you borrow money that you agree to pay back, with interest, at a later date. Typical credit union loans include personal loans, auto loans and mortgage loans. Credit union members often enjoy lower interest rates and may have an easier time getting approved for a loan than at a bank.
