I'm using [Samsung] Messages on an A53 5G phone. I can change the text OK in each chat by pinching to zoom. BUT the text size on the opening (Messages) screen is too small for me, and pinching doesn't work. Is there a way to increase it?

You can adjust this in the phone's settings. Go to Display; then Screen Zoom.

There isn't a separate way for *just* Messages. This zoom setting applies to all apps on your phone.

You can also use the magnifier in the Accessibility settings.

Thanks for the tips, all. I was hoping to increase this font without increasing the systemwide size, but it seems that's not possible. It's helpful to know that.
