Our Mission

Welcome to First State Bank, a true community bank.

Since 1884 we have grown into a trusted and respected community institution. This has been based on our ability to help people realize their personal, financial, and business goals.

To deliver on this promise, we have a number of accounts and services for our valued customers. We are excited to offer Kasasa®, a new way to bank. Qualify for high interest rewards and nationwide ATM refunds with Kasasa Cash®. Kasasa Tunes® lets you earn free iTunes® and Amazon® music and movie downloads — all by doing the things you already do anyway, like using your debit card each month. To make things even more convenient, transfer the interest and ATM fee refunds over to Kasasa Saver® and build your savings automatically.

For local businesses we offer many different types of business loans, including agriculture and commercial real estate loans. Plus, we provide business services, including cash management, remote capture deposit, and merchant card services, to ensure your business has everything it needs to succeed.

Conveniences like First Click online banking & bill pay and mobile banking make it easy for you to manage your accounts from the privacy of your own computer or mobile phone. Now you can bank on your own time, any time.

You're at home with us!

Letter from the President

Being locally controlled and managed gives us the unique ability to make decisions quickly and to provide more customized services and products that truly benefit residents of the area. Our in-house processing is another unique quality of the First State Bank. We process each transaction and service all our loans in our operation departments at First State Bank.
