How does changing jobs affect getting a home loan.?
I have been at my job for 5 years, I guess they consider that job security, however after 5 years I still make the same amount of money so I am looking for another job that'll actually give me a raise. My wife thinks that me changing jobs will affect our chances of getting a good home loan. Does anyone know if this is true or if they'll consider my past job as well?

It probably varies from lender to lender. Why don't you go to your local bank and ask them if changing jobs would effect an application for a loan there? Some lenders want the borrower to be in their job for at least a year, while others don't have that criteria.

If you are in a new job for less than one year, some banks will look at you as a risk for a home loan. These banks will have doubts about your longevity in the "new" position. Other banks may give you a break if you come in with a sizable down payment, and if you had a steady work history prior to changing jobs.

since most lenders want at least a two year job history, why don;t you consider getting a 2nd additional job to help save for a larger downpayment on a home? you can always put off job hunting until you,ve secured a new home.
