Is there a Theist equivalent to Deism?


My relationship with Taoism is through Arts of the Way (Martial Arts) in China. Taoism is dominately Deist to agnostic and some believe atheist, with an undefinable 'Source.'

And see, I've always tried to live "by the rules" and so, if I'm going to call myself something, ie. if I'm going to associate with an established religion, I wanted to be sure I actually fit the description of a believer in said religion. In the past, this has pushed me away from both the religion of my upbringing, and other spiritual philosophies like Taoism. But at this point, I'm tired. I'm tired of being told what I can and cannot call myself, what I can and cannot believe, what I can and cannot do and call it worship. Generic Monotheist it is. :)
