So what is God?

I don't mean what are his attributes, abilities or powers just what is he meant to be? We're assuming he does in fact exist for the purposes of this question before anyone says "a fairytale".

The sentient, intelligent, creator of the universe. Isn't that enough?

Greatest
Omnipotent
Deity

But, technically speaking, by his own description, within his own book (as per the Bible of course), he is the creator of all things, visible and invisible, the knower of all things - past, present, and future, and the determiner of all things that were, are, and will be, and Spirit that has all power, will, and authority over all things.

That's just a description of an attribute he has and something he did its not a definition of what he is meant to be.

This is just a list of things he can do it still isn't a definition of what God actually is.

How is "Creator of the universe" an attribute?

That's something you mark on your resume, not an attribute. Also, what do you mean "what he is meant to be"?

Creating the universe counts as something God did it still doesn't define what God actually is.
