Baptism

“There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call — one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” (Ephesians 4:4-6)

Here at Truro, we are delighted to walk alongside adult followers of Jesus in their journey to baptism, as well as parents who would like their child(ren) baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

As Anglicans, we believe that we are baptized into the fellowship of the Church. Baptism is not just about a believer’s decision (or a parent’s desire). It also involves the Church. Because of this, we take our responsibilities as a church seriously.

To that end, our requirements for baptism at Truro (for either the candidate and/or their family) are as follows:

  1. To regularly worship at Truro, generally for at least 3-4 months prior to the baptism.
  2. To commit to regular worship at Truro following the baptism, that we might walk with the baptized and their family in their life in Christ.
  3. To participate in Truro’s baptism preparation class, so that all involved are aware of the commitments/promises being made in baptism.

If you are interested in baptism at Truro or would like to learn more, we invite you to contact our clergy (pastors) at [email protected].
