Kingdom Identity Ministries (KIM) is a self-described "outreach ministry" based in Harrison, Arkansas, which advocates racism, antisemitism, and the execution of homosexuals.[1][2] Its website states that it "is an outreach ministry to God's chosen race" by which they mean "the White, European peoples" whom they call the "true Israel". They are affiliated with the ideology of Christian Identity. The Southern Poverty Law Center considers it "the largest supplier in existence of materials related to Christian Identity".[3]

It was founded in 1982 by Mike Hallimore and owns the copyright to a number of works on Christian Identity by Bertrand Comparet and Wesley Swift.[3]

It functions primarily as a distributor of books, tracts, and audiotapes about Christian identity and offers correspondence courses through its American Institute of Theology and produces a radio program, Herald of Truth, which is broadcast on shortwave, satellite, and Internet radio. [3]In addition to Christian Identity material, KIM also circulates white supremacist material, including sending white supremacist pamphlets to rural communities in Pennsylvania and funded the distribution of a white-power CD in 2007.[3]
