To Please God and Spread His Word
By Manufacturing Upholstered Furniture
With the EDGE in Quality, Service, and Value
How are we accomplishing this mission?
Pleasing God… Hebrews 11:6 says without faith it is impossible to please God. We believe! And we speak our faith and not our fears. We aspire to be obedient and do the will of God from the heart.
Spreading His Word… We believe in sowing the Word. We do this in the way we talk and work and live. We employ a Christian Chaplain who visits the factory regularly and is available to all employees 24/7. We provide daily devotional books to all employees on a quarterly basis. We post His Word on the walls throughout our facility. We provide free access to Rightnowmedia.org for all employees. We use God’s word to plan and hire and make daily business decisions.
We love building furniture. Comfortable furniture. Nice looking, attractive pieces. Functional products that are durable and work well. What is the EDGE we have to accomplish this? Our EDGE comes from our values.
EFFICIENCY – The extent to which time, effort or cost is well used for the intended task or purpose. We expect to perform our jobs correctly the first time and as quickly as possible without wasted time, effort, or materials. Any manufacturing company must value efficiency and at Edgecombe we highly value efficiency.
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. – Ephesians 5: 15-17
DILIGENCE – Displaying the attention and care required. Let us be about the business we are given. We should not put off until tomorrow what can be accomplished today. We must avoid procrastination and do what needs to be done now.
And He said to them, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?” – Luke 2:49
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. – 2 Timothy 2:15
And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end. – Hebrews 6:11
… And this work goes on diligently and prospers in their hands. – Ezra 5:8
The hand of the diligent will rule, but the lazy man will be put to forced labor. – Proverbs 12:24
… But diligence is man’s precious possession. – Proverbs 12:27
The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich. – Proverbs 12:27
GRIT – We believe that in Christ all things are possible. We believe we are capable of more and God desires more for us. We want to steadfastly stand until we have overcome and won the victory. At Edgecombe, we believe there is a way and with Christ’s help we can find it and make it happen.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. – Philippians 4:13
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. – Hebrews 10:23
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. – Ephesians 6:13
EXCELLENCE – Being the very best God created us to be and never willingly settling for less. We must perform our work as to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men. – Proverbs 22:29
