Your first sentence is correct although you will hear native speakers use both forms. This is an example of the subjunctive mood, which many native speakers don't use consistently. See here for an explanation: http://www.grammar-monster.com/glossary/subjunctive_mood.htm

"It is important that he comes on time" is grammatically correct, though "arrives" would be better than "comes" usually.
