God in Astronism is conceptualised as an infinite force that both created The Omniverse of limited cosmoses and interpenetrates them through its dispensation of scope as the manifestation of divinity in the limited cosmic realm. God is also believed to have initiated The Universe which exists on a course of infinite createdness. Astronism adheres to panentheism, the doctrine that God is both greater than the universe while also including and interpenetrating it. Among Astronists and in Astronist literature, God referred to as The Divine; this terminology is strictly observed in The Omnidoxy although there has been a recent lax and now some Astronist publications also use the term god.

Astronist non-theist tendencies[]

Astronism is a religion that is not necessitated on a belief in a God, or higher power deity that exacts a certain moral code. For this reason, Astronism can be described as non-theistic, in a similar yet distinct sense to Jainism and Buddhism, both of which are religions that do not necessarily deny the existence of God, but do not ascribe particular focus on the concept of God. Essentially, in Astronism, the role of the concept of God is reduced in comparison to other religions which are likely described as theocentric, hence their focus is placed on God. Particularly, it is the source of spirituality that the worldview of the religion is derived, hence why Astronism is referred to as cosmocentric because it derives its spirituality from The Cosmos, or the astronomical world as it may also be referred to.
