How do you believe the Universe was created?
Your question is based on a false premise. "Created" mandates a creator.
There is no evidence to suggest a creator.
Evidence suggests our current universe was formed by a series of events starting with the big bang then natural formation of planets, stars, and life.

I have no belief in how the universe came into being, it's still being looked into and there have been some very interesting hypothesis on this, none of which include a god btw, so until such time as something concrete comes up I'll settle for 'I don't know'
i have no beliefs about how the universe came to be except that it most certainly had no creator. i have heard explanations about possible ways, and most of them sound reasonable, but if scientists can't agree on the exact details, what difference would MY "beliefs" make? they're working on it. they're doing a good job. it's interesting. it really has nothing to do with beliefs (or creation).
I believe the laws of physics gathered up and compressed a ball of matter until it's composition caused it to erupt.
As for where the matter came from, I believe it is eternal. After the heat-death the universe will still exist.
Perhaps, eventually, there will be another compressed ball in the void.
I don’t believe my guessing could do much more than regurgitate documentaries on the topic, they’re good at making a theory sound plausible. I believe it was a natural burst of energy caused by nothing I’m sure of. I don’t believe it was an intelligence of any kind and the notion that it was seems childish and silly to me.
In terms of my spiritual beliefs, my view is that the sum total of all the forces within the universe and all interactions between them is the closest thing we have to "God". And that includes all the things we have yet to understand, mainly the details of time and space which have scales that are beyond our comprehension. A cosmic ecosystem within which we are infinitely small.
I'm as curious as the next, but I don't expect we'll unlock all the long-lost secrets of our past. I certainly don't think unknowns need a supernatural explanation. Some things are unknown, some things are unknowable, perhaps. I can live with that.
