The Bible has its definition, but outside of organized religion you could probably define "God" hundreds of ways.

Which makes it so confusing to me when people call themselves atheists - I mean, in terms of the Biblical definition, I'm an atheist too. I don't believe in THAT God.

But I think there's some force, and I don't know what form it takes or if it can even be imagined by us - that is responsible for what we see around us, and by THAT definition, I believe in God.
Update: Interesting that lots of the answers say "He" - I would consider God as more of an "it".
