Mission & Values

Our banking journey began in 1973, when a group of investors organized by Charles T. "Chuck" Doyle, Chairman Emeritus, purchased First State Bank of Hitchcock. The group set goals and successfully established a network of community banks in all ten incorporated cities in Galveston County by the end of the Twentieth Century. Now, four decades after first opening its doors, Texas First Bank has 22 banking centers and 53 ATM locations in Southeast Texas across six counties - Galveston, Brazoria, Chambers, Harris, Jefferson, and Liberty.

With innovative products like online and mobile banking, the bank is virtually available for banking services 24 hours a day, almost anywhere in the world. And, with the additions of Rust-Ewing Insurance Agency, Texas First Mortgage, Texas First SBA Lending, and the Texas First Investment Center, the bank is more than just a bank. It's a wide-range financial services institution dedicated to helping our customers and community grow and thrive.

Strong, Solid and Secure. Through all aspects of market fluctuation, Texas First Bank has maintained its financially conservative roots. The bank has never pursued risky asset investments, and as a result, continues to be a shining star among all Texas community banks. With the desire and ability to lend money to quality borrowers, serve communities by recruiting quality employees who provide superior customer service, a vast array of state-of-the-art products, and a commitment to community involvement, Texas First Bank has positioned itself among the elite community banks of Texas and plans to be around for many years to come.
