no power getting to my ignition coil

when i turn my key to the start position i have power going to the ignition coil and the starter. i can hear the engine start to turn over. when i release the key and it goes to the on position the car shuts off. i don't have constant power going to the ignition coil to keep it running. where is this power supposed to be comming from?. i have the battery cable hooked up to the starter. i have the mail power supply going from the starter to the firewall and into the ignition switch. from the ignition switch there is the ignition wire going to the firewall and to the ignition coil (+) from the ignition coil (+) the starter wire going to the starter. i've tested my starter, and ignition coil; both are good. the ignition switch is brand new, along with the spark plugs. i know that i'm missing something small.... please help. thank you.
