Theism

(Greek theos + ismos: God-belief) Philosophy that admits the existence of God and the possibility of divine revelations. God is transcendent and also active in the world. Because it is a philosophy rather than a system of theology derived from revelation, it does not include specifically Christian doctrines like those concerning the Trinity, Incarnation, and Redemption.
