Theorem: In a circle, a radius perpendicular to a chord bisects the chord. So, the point of interesection of the chord and the radius is the midpoint of the chord.

You don't need no theorem. Basically, you have an isosceles triangle, and its altitude (perpendicular line from the vertex) bistects the base, in this case the chord.
