About Us

Since opening our first bank in Berne, Indiana in 1891, we have believed in the power of relationships. We believed that by treating people with compassion and respect, they would trust us with their banking needs. Our first customers were our friends and neighbors in the community. Those relationships lead to more relationships that strengthened and grew year after year. You could say that our business was built on relationships.

For over 125 years, we have strived to stay true to our beliefs and values as a company. To do right by ourselves and our customers. To treat people the way we would want to be treated. And to be courteous to everyone regardless of their account size. We have always believed that banking should be easy and it is our responsibility to make it that way. From personal checking and savings accounts to more involved lending and business solutions, you can trust our banking experts to help make things as simple and easy as possible.

All of our professionals are more than just bankers – they are your friends and neighbors. We believe it is important for us to have a local perspective. To understand the people and businesses of the community, their needs and how to best serve those needs. No matter what your personal, business or agri banking needs, First Bank of Berne can help with the right banking solutions for you.
