Summary/Abstract: Creator of the world is the Triune God – the transcendent and immanent at the same time. Science reveals the universe evolving at all levels and the most important costitutive reason for theology is the relation of constant creation. Reflection of God's Communion in creation and communional sacramentality of created world are the foundation of Trynitarian-communional theology of creation. Theology distinguishes three models of interpreting the action of God in the world: through direct intervention, through the established order and through the active presence. The last model shows that the creation was accomplished not so much through the God's omnipotence and wisdom, but by the God's love. An important element of the Trinitarian understanding of creation is its Christological aspect and the theiosis of the universe opens the prospect of the final dimensions of this vision.
