PHP PDO - Insert Ignore Still Adds Record

I'd like to check if a record exists, if it doesn't, then add it.  If it does, don't do anything.  I found the 'insert ignore' command and tried it with this code.
	$query = $qry_contact_church_owner->prepare('INSERT IGNORE INTO contact_church_owner (
		id_contact_church, 
		al_username 
		) 
	VALUES (
		:id_contact_church, 
		:al_username 
	)');
	
	$query->bindParam(':id_contact_church', $id_contact_church);
	$query->bindParam(':al_username', $al_username, PDO::PARAM_INT);

Open in new window

When I run the code, the record is inserted even though there is already a record in the table.

Any ideas on a fix are greatly appreciated.
