A non-denominational church of bible teaching, people loving, Jesus worshiping, casual dressing, praying, fun believers whose goal is to live the truth of God's word and show people the love of Jesus. 

Washed by the Word Church

Jesus is at the center of Washed By The Word. Our desire is to see people come to Christ and allow Him to direct their lives. Gods’ grace and mercy are at the forefront of our ministry. We place strong emphasis on teaching the Bible chapter by chapter and verse by verse. We believe in ”Simply teaching the Word of God simply.”

We emphasize the Love, Grace, and Mercy of God, and the Power of the Holy Spirit in reaching out to a lost community. You will notice that we have people of all ages and ethnicity loving Jesus together. Please know that you are always welcome here, we are a church where you will be loved and accepted. 

Our services are very simple. There is a time of worship and prayer followed by a verse by verse Bible study. We do offer Sunday school for children under the age of 13. However, your children are welcome to stay in the sanctuary if you wish.

What We Believe

We are a non-denominational Christian church that strives to see people come to a saving faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We believe that the Bible is the inerrant word of God and that all Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable in all areas of our life (II Timothy 3:16-17). We believe that the Bible is the complete revelation of God's plan for salvation and that faith in Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His crucifixion and resurrection…is the only way to be saved from the certain judgment promised by God upon all who have sinned. We believe that this saving faith is a gift from God (Ephesians 2:8) and that this gift of faith comes from hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:12).

Our Pastor

christian inter ratial marriages

Pastor Kon Tweeten was born again on March 25, 1975. After finishing his education, he went into his family’s business working as a funeral director. During this time , he continued his Christian education through St Paul Bible College, Moody Bible Institute and Liberty University.

In 1987, the Lord opened a door for him to be part of a church plant in Santa Fe, NM. The next 15 years were spent bringing the message of Jesus Christ to Santa Fe and the surrounding communities. In 2002 Pastor Kon resigned as pastor of Calvary Chapel de Santa Fe and in 2004 his marriage of 28 years ended in divorce.

The next several years were filled with a wide range of emotions. It was during this time that “I learned what true repentance really was. I experienced God's mercy, grace and forgiveness. I came to understand what Jesus was saying when He proclaimed, He who is forgiven much, loves much”.

In 2009, Pastor Kon completed a two year restoration process through his church. Later that year another door was opened to plant a church… this time in Albuquerque, NM.

Washed By The Word is a non-denominational Christian Church that is dedicated to teach the word in an environment of love and acceptance… Ministering the Grace of God and the Love of Jesus to all who attend.

Pastor Kon and his wife, Connie ( March 2007), have four daughters and five grandchildren and are forever grateful for our loving Savior, The Lord Jesus Christ.
