ALEXANDRIA, Va. (10/3/08)—There is a new federal credit union in Dallas, Tex., according to an announcement by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Thursday. Oak Cliff Christian FCU has a field of membership with 8,500 potential members. The NCUA said the credit union will serve members and employees of the Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship Church and its subsidiaries, as well as students of the fellowship Christian Academy--all based in Dallas. The credit union office will be located on the campus of the Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship Church. The credit union’s founders decided to charter the credit union to “offer the field of membership a place to confidently deposit their savings and investments with security for the future,” and to provide a safe, sound democratic alternative to traditional financial institutions, according to the NCUA.
