Transcendence is a theological term that when referring to the Christian God states that God is outside of the universe and is independent of it and its properties. God is "other," "different" from His creation. He is independent and different from His creatures (Isaiah 55:8-9). He transcends His creation. He is beyond it and not limited by it or to it.
