No, there are some factors that will affect the rate constant of a reaction but not the equilibrium constant. For example, a catalyst may increase the rate of a reaction, but the equilibrium constant will stay the same. This is because the equilibrium constant is the proportion of the forward and reverse rates which will both be affected equally. On the other hand, factors like temperature CAN affect both the equilibrium constant and the rate constant.
