I believe in one God who is the Creator of the universe and source of the vital spark that energizes life. God is conceived of, prayed to, and worshipped in diverse ways. Some believe God does not interfere with the workings of the universe (deism), others imagine a moralistic God dispensing justice. Some conceive of God as an Intelligent Designer who acted with a purpose. Some give God human, perhaps male, attributes (anthropomorphism), others worship a female Goddess (Gaia). In sacred texts of many religions God is celebrated. Such words, I believe, are to be valued for what they inspire, not as divine words subject to literal interpretation. (Note: Many think God is concerned with human beings personally, and that God watches over them.)
