CPR began with a very diversified and great group of individuals. Some of us have lived our lives surrounded by the paranormal, some have had some paranormal experiences and some were non-believers whose interest became peaked and are now a part of the team. I would say that we are all healthy skeptics on a case by case basis. We know what we have all personally experienced and no one can take that away from us.
Initially, there was just a few of us that decided to go off on our own and begin investigating historical locations to feed our curiosity. Of course, that just led to a greater hunger to try and understand the unknown world of the paranormal. Some how one thing led to another and we found ourselves discussing the possibility of actually forming an official group and offer our services to the public. It was an exciting time and we looked forward to the possibilities. We were all level headed, curious, open minded, worked well together and we had a desire to help the living and the dead. Many times we had found ourselves in conversation about how terrible it must be for those spirits that had not moved on, existing in a timeless and confusing realm. We all attended church together and after throwing out about 100 name ideas, we decided up what brought us all together in the first place, thus, Christian Paranormal Research was born.
When we discussed what the purpose and goals of our team would be, we all agreed that we desired to attempt to help those spirits cross over and finally be at peace. We also wanted to be able to not only assist our clients in their time of need but to also give them and the public an awareness and better understanding of what might be taking place in our world. Being the optimists, we had to acknowledge that this would not always be an easy goal to reach, but one that we were ready and willing to work towards.
Each member of CPR has their own special gift that truly makes our team work extremely well together. Right away we all agreed that we did not believe in provoking or being cruel and ignorant. Most of what we would be dealing with had at one time been just as human as us. The rest of the time, when we find ourselves dealing with inhuman anomalies, the provoking or being cruel and ignorant would only be a detriment to our purpose and our safety. Our personalities really meld well together and that is why we are so successful.
At one point, we had found ourselves dealing with a case that involved the occult and demonology. We were not to proud to admit that this was beyond our ability and we found ourselves reaching out to another team, SPRE, that did specialize in this area for assistance, and have worked with this same group in another demonic haunting as well. We are willing to do whatever it might take to help our clients. We have found this to be a sort of calling and each step forward that we take, we find that we have an amazing team that blends very well together and we all are working towards the same purpose; finding the truth, whether it is paranormal or not.
