About Us

MJB Ministries was founded by Pastors Mike & Cynthia Burns after serving the Lord and Long Island for over 35 years. Michael J. Burns began a bible study back in July 1983 in the Baldwin American Legion Hall Post #246. These meetings went on weekly until July 1984 when through a series of confirmations this bible study became Christian Joy Fellowship, Inc. For sixteen years we moved in and out, twice a week, setting up and breaking down a 15 passenger van load of equipment.

Multitudes were reached and discovered a fresh faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. In March 2000 we moved into a full time 4000 square foot facility that we rented and eventually purchased in Bellmore, Long Island. It was then we changed our name to REAL Church. In September of 2018 REAL Church closed it’s doors as Pastors Mike & Cynthia took their combined experience of nearly 80 years into a New Phase of Ministry!

Pastors Mike & Cynthia Burns have found that a set back is really a set up for a comeback! We are in a “Rebuilding Season” and are excited to have you come and join the rebuilding adventure and become our partner today!

What To Expect

When you attend an MJB Ministries Event…You Can Expect:

To encounter the Love of God as if for the first time.

You can expect a powerful and intimate time of Praise and Worship. Our style of music is contemporary with a mix of traditional hymns too.

You should expect a dynamic and relevant message designed to help you discover the life you were born to live.

You can expect the Impossible! We expect God’s power to be displayed in response to our worship and through the ministry of the Word of God! “Jesus Christ is healing the sick at ALL MJB Ministries Events!”

You will be given an opportunity to worship God through the ministry of giving of offerings and of becoming a partner with us. Just remember that we have a saying at our church events, “It costs you nothing to get in and it will cost you nothing to get out!” Giving is always free will and never done under compulsion!

You should expect to be invited to a time of ‘Meet & Greet’ with Mike and Cynthia Burns or one of our assistant ministers. This may be accompanied with some light refreshments following the worship experience.

Finally, you should expect to be invited to engage a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and the God who created you for His purpose.
