KTBW originally signed on the air with the call sign KQFB on March 30, 1984. As KQFB, the station was originally locally owned by Family Broadcasting based in University Place, Washington. Family Broadcasting originally was going to broadcast Christian programming from several sources. Before the station went on the air, a minority interest in KQFB was acquired by the Trinity Broadcasting Network. When TBN acquired all the interest in Family Broadcasting, the call letters changed from KQFB to KTBW on December 18, 1984.
This station's digital signal, like most other full-service TBN owned-and-operated stations, carries five different TBN-run networks.

TBN-owned full-power stations permanently ceased analog transmissions on April 16, 2009.
KTBW-TV shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 20, on that date. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 14, using PSIP to display KTBW-TV's virtual channel as 20 on digital television receivers.
