Trinity Methodist Church, after 1972 known as the Springfield Baptist Church, is a historic Methodist church in Beacon in Dutchess County, New York. It was originally constructed about 1849 as the Associate Presbyterian Church. It was expanded and improved in 1864, 1887, 1891, and 1895. The church consists of a large nave with a steeply pitched gable roof. The main facade features an offset multi-stage bell tower with spire.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2010.[1]
