- Jehovah's Witnesses believe in one almighty God, Jehovah, the creator of all things. Adherents believe in a God's Kingdom that will replace the world as we know it. They believe Jesus has ruled in heaven since 1914 as Jehovah's appointed king and the current world is in its last days.

Jehovah's Witnesses by the numbers:

- In the greater Tucson area: 6,000

- In the United States: 1 million

- In the world: 6.5 million
