Creed is a village in Cornwall, United Kingdom. It is roughly midway between Truro and St Austell, about two miles (3 km) east of Probus.

Creed is in the civil parish of Grampound with Creed and the name comes from Sancta Crida, from Saint Cride, the patron of the church.

The manor of Tybesta was the head manor of the hundred of Powder in the time of Domesday and later one of the 17 Antiqua maneria of the Duchy of Cornwall. William Gregor, the discoverer of titanium, was rector here.

The church of St Andrew was of Norman foundation but in its existing form is more or less of the 15th century (the tower however was rebuilt in 1734). Between 1869 and 1906 the church was unused. It has a towner of three stages, a fine south aisle and a south porch. Parts of the old woodwork have been preserved.
