Our Mission:

We build relationships by adding value to the people we serve.

Whether we are assisting you with financial challenges, helping prepare for the unexpected, or celebrating the successes of your life, The Community State Bank team is always willing to roll up our sleeves and pitch in.  We are a reflection of the friends and neighbors we serve.  You make this journey worthwhile!



The Community State Bank, Chartered originally as Poteau State Bank, was organized in 1970. Several local businessmen saw the need for another financial institution and started the new bank. While the bank's main office is located in Poteau, branch locations can be found in Spiro, Wister and Talihina as well as the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Poteau.

The Community State Bank is locally owned and operated. The board and Sr staff practice a philosophy of giving much back to many causes and organizations. The bank mirrors this philosophy and is truly a community oriented bank being involved in events, functions and fundraisers throughout the county. The bank staff participates in many civic and community events, providing leadership as well as hands on participation to make our communities great places to live.
