If Darwin's 'natural selection' is 'wrong' this will have no effect of whether evolution occurs or not but will merely pass the causes of evolution to some other mechanisms. In fact other mechanisms are acknowledged as occurring alongside 'selection of the fittest', even by Darwin, such as 'sexual selection'.

'Christianity' means different things to different people, which is why there are so many different churches, and even within those people seem to pick and choose what they believe in. Many do not take it to mean creationism, or even require belief in the mythology of Genesis, nor indeed of any particular part of the old testament.

Darwin doesn't need Christianity to be wrong, nor does Christianity (except some fundamentalist cults) doesn't need Darwin to be wrong.
