Do all Christians believe in creationism?

No of course not - only a tiny, tiny minority of them.
Added, you have a couple of people mentioning evolution. It seems quite a few people who post here don't know what that is. Evolution does NOT attempt to explain “the creation”. Nor does it attempt to explain how life on Earth originated.
Evolution is the name given to the way organisms adapt and change over generations.

Creationism is a term used to define a specific belief which is not supported by the scriptures - specifically, young earth creationism asserts that God created the earth or the universe in 6 days.
But the Bible, specifically Genesis 1 and 2, uses the word "day" for three different blocks of time - 24 hours, 12 hours and the entire time when God created the heavens and earth.
Concerning evolution and direct creation of humans, there is a GREAT chasm between those two ideas. The chasm is called intelligence. Evolutionists imagine (cannot quantify, but imagine) that the complexity of the universe can come about without purposeful intelligence guiding it.
Christians MUST believe that God created humans male and female, because Jesus believed and taught it.
4 In reply he said: “Have you not read that the one who created them from the beginning made them male and female 5 and said: ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and his mother and will stick to his wife, and the two will be one flesh’?
For this reason, most scientists who espouse evolution are either atheists or agnostics. LaPlace said concerning the idea of God as Creator "I have no need for that hypothesis".Most evolutionists say that evolution does not address the origin of life or the origin of matter, space, forces, energy and laws from which life is developed. The bottom line is, no matter how you define it, evolution, in order to be true, has to at least hypothesize how these things originated and how life itself began. It is a lot more complicated than the idea of the Big Bang - in fact, where IT came from has to be answered in this universe where effects come from causes. There is also no inkling of how an unguided universe came up with the complex fine tuning of laws that hold it together.Atheism and macroevolution does not, and cannot, explain it. There are no non-intelligent forms of natural selection found in the universe. The forces of current microevolutionary activity are very similar to intelligence. With a house there is an architect who designed it and a builder. You cannot even make a pot without clay and a potter who knows what a pot looks like.

True Christians believe that God created all in heaven and on earth. Evolution is not a Bible teaching.

This Christian does. How can any Christian believe otherwise?

Nope. Am a Christian, but I believe in evolution.

I don't know. To some extent, maybe, but many Christians are evolutionists.

If you mean the fact that God brought into existence all that exists, yes they do. However, most Christians have no problem with any truth revealed by science.

If they believe the whole Bible is true then yes

A Christian has to be a Creationist
Within Creationism there is young earth creationism, old earth creationism, evolutionary creationism, etc. There are subcategories of being a Creationist. It seems there is confusion with atheist about the term creationist. All Christians are creationists, not all Christians are young earth creationists.
