Defining Theism and Deism.

Does anyone have good and distinguishing definitions for theism and deism?

I always thought Theism means believing a God exists, Atheism and not believing in God, and polytheism as believing in many gods. Deism I think refers to believing in some kind of supreme entity but trying to be pinned down or believing a specific religion, which would include the denial of miracles, etc.

If anyone can clarify these two terms, that would be most helpful. Thanks.
