Panentheism: "God is in the world!"
If we picture Atheism as an empty physical universe without any god, and Pantheism as a universe that is itself God, then Panentheism is a universe in which God would be inside of it all. The actual word "panentheism" is made up of three Greek words that mean "all", "in", and "god" respectively.
Panentheism is the view that God is in all, and that God is developing and changing along with the world. It is also called "process theology", or "bipolar theism", "organicism" since it views the universe as a gigantic organism, or even "neoclassical theism" since its idea of God is very different than the classical Christian concept.
