Loyal, Reliable Service
The First State Bank is considered a state icon of financial stability, with over 119 years of service to Oklahomans and Oklahoma businesses. Being privately owned puts us in the unique position of being able to provide all the banking products that the big banks offer, but with the personal attention and friendly, trustworthy service normally only seen in smaller community banks. We offer all the latest, up-to-date products and services such as online banking, mobile banking, and mobile deposit. These, along with fast, local decisions made on affordable personal and business loans, position The First State Bank as the bank to meet all your financial needs.
Committed to Oklahoma Communities
We are dedicated to giving back to the communities we serve. Supporting the organizations that help families thrive in those communities is important to us. We proudly support organizations such as A Chance to Change, Positive Tomorrows, and Wings through monetary donations and support from our bank staff. Our executive leaders encourage our employees to volunteer in our communities on bank time through our Employee Volunteer Program, and several of our staff members serve on the boards of local organizations.
