Truro is a hospitable church. We believe that through Jesus’ death and bodily resurrection, God invites everyone into his loving, divine community. So everyone is invited to come to Truro and encounter the living and transforming presence of God.
Truro is a place...
for heartfelt worship and praise, where we encounter the lively and living presence of Jesus. In music and singing, in the biblical preaching of the Word, in the celebration of the Eucharist, and in our prayer ministry, we encounter the real and beautiful presence of Jesus among us.
Truro is a resource...
for local and global evangelism and mission. At Truro, people can find renewal and healing, as well as community and friendship.
a lively and welcoming ministry for internationals; a heart for the renewal of marriage and family life; and a compassionate ministry to the poor and outcast.

The Bible is our theological grounding and primary authority.
The historic Nicene Creed summarizes this biblical faith. During our Sunday services, we reaffirm our faith by joining together and reciting this creed.
We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, visible and invisible.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only-begotten Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father [and the Son],
who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic* and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
*The word “catholic” here refers to the universal Church—the whole body of Christ in the world.
Other creeds and documents that underlie our faith include the Apostle’s Creed, the 39 Articles, and the Jerusalem Declaration. These can be found in the Book of Common Prayer, downloadable at.
