God is supposed to be an essentially omnipotent, omniscient, perfectly free, and eternal personal being. Omnipotence is power to do anything logically possible; omniscience is knowledge of everything logically possible to know. Being eternal is to exist everlastingly. It follows that God is omnipresent, creator of the universe, and perfectly good.
