1991 Melton, J. Gordon (ed.). The Encyclopedia of American Religions: Vol. 1. Tarrytown, NY: Triumph Books (1991), pg. 299. Chapter: Pentecostal Family; section: Other Pentecostals. "Neverdies... Known locally in the communities of West Virginia as the Church of the Living Gospel or the Church of the Everlasting Gospel, the Neverdies are Pentecostals who believe in immortality not only of the soul but also of the body. The soul, the believe, returns to earth in a series of reincarnations until it succeeds in living a perfect life. At that point, the boy can live forever. THe origin of the group has been lost, but among the first teachers was Ted Oiler, born in 1906, who in 1973 was still traveling a circuit through the mountains of Virginia and North Carolina. The congregations are rather loosely knit, held together by their acceptance of what is a rather unusual doctrine for the mountain area. Among the leaders is Rev. Henry Holstine of Charleston, West Virginia. "
