About CHIM

The original vision was conceived in 1984 while Roger de Brabant was working for OnTel, at a time when Christian Broadcasting was illegal in Canada. After many years of prayer and waiting upon the Lord, the breakthrough came with the June 3, 1993 CRTC decision which finally allowed Christian Radio Stations in Canada. Immediately upon hearing the good news, de Brabant started working on an application for a Christian station in Timmins. At this time, the only Christian Radio Stations that were on the air where in Newfoundland, who had their two stations since before Confederation, and where therefore not subject to the rules and regulations of the CRTC.

Approved on October 27, 1995 CHIM would become Canada's first non-commercial Christian radio station. On air testing began on December 24, 1995 and we officially went on the air on that Glorious Easter Sunday morning at 8:15 am, on April 7,1996.

Our Vision

Is to build a Christian radio station in every Canadian city, town or district. Our message is simple: We want to reach people with the Good News of Salvation provided through faith in Jesus Christ. We want to reach people through the lyrics and the music of today's Christian music.

Our Statement of Faith

  • We believe that God is one person in the trinity of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.

  • We believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God in the Old and New Testaments and is the final authority in the life and salvation of the believer.

  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the virgin born Son of God through Mary, being fully God and fully man having been conceived by the Holy Spirit.

  • We believe that all are sinners and must be reconcilled to God through the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ on the cross and all who repent of their sinful nature through the blood of Jesus Christ become born again and have the right to be called children of God.

  • We believe in water baptism commanded by God as an act of obedience to those who have repented and believe in Jesus Christ.

  • We believe in the taking of communion as we gather as believers, as our expression of belief in the sure and imminent return of Jesus Christ to earth to reign here forever.

  • We believe that Israel both past, present and future are God's chosen people for His perfect plan and purpose on earth and all who bless Israel will be blessed and all who curse Israel will be cursed.
