Theism
Belief in one God (or Gods) as the creator and ruler of the universe.

Non-Theism/Atheism
strong atheism - god does not exist
weakly atheistic - does not think about the existence of a deity

Agnostic
agnosticism - something is out there but does not know what, there is no proof and it is unknowable.
strong/positive - impossible to know
weak - unknown but not necessarily unknowable

Pantheism
Believe the Earth and universe is God. That the Earth needs to be taken care of. Does not believe in supernatural. Does not believe in a transcendent (superior, supreme being) or anthropomorphic (ascribing human traits to a God) entity.

Panentheism
(God is All) Believe what pantheists believe about the Earth and universe, but also believe in transcendence of God.

Animism
This is a belief that all natural things (objects, phenomena, and the universe itself) have souls or a spirit. It is also the belief in spiritual beings or agencies or a doctrine that the soul is the principle to health and life.

Deism
This is best explained as either a belief in a God based on the evidence of reason or nature with rejection of supernatural evaluation. It may also mean a belief that God (s) exist but that they don't take part of our lives or that they created the world but are now indifferent to it.

Hedonism
The doctrine that pleasure or happiness is the highest good a person can achieve; it is a devotion to maintaining personal pleasure as a way of life.

Monotheism
Belief in one God.

Polytheist
Belief in more than one God.

These are some of the more common theistic views. There are many others as well, but not as well known. The link provided above has additional definitions for those who are interested in other forms of theism. If I got something wrong, feel free to let me know and I'll fix it
