On stock Samsung firmware...

Messages > Menu (3 dots) > Settings > Display. Here you can change, "Bubble style", "Background style" and, "Change font size". See screenshots...

You are on the Verizon's clone firmware that bears as much resemblance to stock Samsung firmware as a camel does to a horse!

I would recommend installing the excellent Textra SMS, free from the Play Store. It is fully compatible and configurable.

I'm using TEXTRA now. I don't see a way to change the background color. I can change the bubble color, but not the background. Did I miss something?

Errr... by selecting Dark Mode or Black, in Textra > Settings > Customize Look > Dark Mode

Just to be clear for others reading, I have a Verizon S5 (5.0) and those settings certainly DO exist on my phone. I don't know why they wouldn't be on your phone.
