Hi friend. I just learned that in some cases rebaptism may in fact be possible/necessary for those who have joined other churches. You ought to chat with your bishop about the possibility. Best of luck!

Jesus Christ was Himself baptized in the Jordan river to provide an example for each of us. (Reflections of Christ)

I’m happy you want to come back to the church! Unless you’ve been excommunicated, it’s not necessary to be re-baptized, even if you’ve been baptized in another religion. Your previous baptism in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints still remains in effect.

To come back to the church, I suggest you look up the Mormon congregation nearest to your house online and chat with the local Bishop. Perhaps the missionaries could also help you return.

I hope this answer helps! Let me know if you have any additional questions.
