    The point is in the congruence. Use have to make agree the verb with the noun.

    Приходят means “to come” used for “they” to express the present tense:
    Они приходят — they come

    Прийти is for “to come” used for “I, you, he, she, it, we, they” to express a sub action:
    Я хочу прийти — I want TO come

    прийти - this is initial verb. приходят - declination of the verb, in plural. Come - прийти. They come - они приходят
